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.

M83 — Saturdays = Youth


Rod Lott May 8th, 2008

M83 is one of modern music's best-kept secrets. The moniker of Anthony Gonzalez, M83 takes its name from a galaxy, which is wholly appropriate, given that his music shines and sparkles like the stars.

Electronic music rarely is both experimental and accessible, but through five albums now, the tunes of M83 have forged new ground while soothing Eustachian tubes. "Saturdays = Youth" may be a good starting point for anyone not a member of the club, as informed as it is by Eighties synth tunes.

Seriously, some tracks' "Kim and Jessie" and the single "Graveyard Girl" in particular' sound like they were lifted off the soundtracks of any given John Hughes movie. There's also a hint of Kate Bush in the occasional female vocals, which tease in a call-and-response manner to Gonzalez's utterings, often synthesized to near-whispers.


"Saturdays = Youth" equals music magic. —”Rod Lott
