Music Made Me: Josh Hogsett

Few, if any, Oklahoma bands have seen a rise as meteoric as Tallows over the past year, yet its seemingly overnight ascension didn’t happen by chance. The Oklahoma City four-piece is well-versed in the ways of modern pop songwriting, drawing from both glitchy electronica and cathartic indie rock in equal measure. Last year, the band pulled off a rare musical feat with its debut album, Memory Marrow, which was steeped heavily in the breadth of recent history yet managed to sound like nothing else before it.

Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

Paul "Wine" Jones-Stop Arguing Over Me


None December 14th, 2006

jones-paul-stoparguingoverm

Fat Possum Records

This, the final album from the late Paul "Wine" Jones (1946-2005)' an original member of the Fat Possum Records family and a specialist in the raw, quirky, electric blues that put the label on the map' begins unexpectedly: with a hard-driving, hip-struttin' dance number. It's basically Jones' version of disco, and it's very, very good.
 
Although a couple other cuts stay in this groove, the rest of the album is more traditional Fat Possum fare' the kind of primal blues that spent decades fermenting into its own blend in the North Mississippi hill country while Chicago and Delta blues held the limelight.
 
Sadly, most of the label's original artists are now either deceased or too old to play, and Jones' passing signifies an ending to this rich vein of the blues. This album is solid on its own, but it is truly significant because of its place in the genre's timeline.
