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.

Frank Sinatra-Vegas


None December 7th, 2006

Rhino/Reprise

Some things just go well together: peanut butter and jelly, spring and baseball, Frank Sinatra and Las Vegas. The Chairman of the Board arguably was never more at home than prowling the stages of Sin City nightclubs, dishing out snappy patter and electric readings of signature tunes like "Fly Me to the Moon" and "The Lady Is a Tramp."
 
Spread across four CDs and one DVD, "Sinatra: Vegas" is an expansive document of Ol' Blue Eyes' nearly six decades entertaining in the Nevada desert: Each disc contains an entire concert, with one devoted to a 1966 performance backed by Count Basie and his orchestra.
 
If nothing else, "Sinatra: Vegas" is a searing, vivid introduction for the casual listener and essential set of previously unreleased performances for the die-hard fan; with biting wit and a flair for finding the soul in any song, Sinatra is, then and now, a showman for the ages.
