Topic: Desi and Cody

VOTD: Austin via Tulsa

Watch Tulsa’s Desi and Cody play a morning show before you catch them at SXSW.

Tulsa bluegrass-folk-indie duo Desi and Cody swung by the FOX 23 studio in Tulsa last week for an appearance on Great Day Green Country. The song’s called “Fable,” and it’s a nice showcase of Desirae Roses’ singing ability.

Also, please excuse the morning show host’s mispronunciation of Bruce Springsteen’s last name. Check Desi and Cody out at South by Southwest at Friends Bar (208 E. Sixth) at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, or at The Side Bar (602 E. Seventh) at 3:15 p.m. Friday.

SXSW: Buffalo Lounge: Desi and Cody

Fleet Foxes-style new folk!

In contrast to Wink and Jesse's traditional folk sound, Desi and Cody work in that hip genre of new folk that includes Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver and Grizzly Bear. The duo fall closest to Fleet Foxes' sonorous, round, melodic sound, but it's not all somber beauty: they delivered a strummy gospel tune and a hilarious ode to hipsters. The latter tongue-in-cheek tune, chronicling all the elitism and pretentiousness that come with knowing more music than thee assembled masses below them, was capped off by Cody dedicating the song to "Toms Shoes. And Chuck Taylors." NICE.

The duo returned a favor by inviting the former duo up to the stage for a combined two songs; Cody said that musicians collaborate often in Tulsa, repping The New Tulsa Sound. (Aycock contributed slide guitar, Burcham played acoustic.) Suitably, the first group tune was a formal country song. Overall, though, Desi and Cody would appeal much more to the hipsters they poked fun at. Their charming set is a strong recommendation for picking their recorded music.
