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.

Alison Krauss and Union Station — Paper Airplane

It's good. But you probably knew that already

Stephen Carradini April 12th, 2011

At this point, Alison Krauss is impervious to criticism.


If you haven’t heard of her, you probably don’t like bluegrass. If you have heard of her, you know what you’re going to get when she puts out an album.

If you haven’t heard of her and  you like bluegrass, you need to fix that with “Paper Airplane.” Her gorgeous voice and down-home fiddle lead a bluegrass/country set of tunes that will make traditionalists froth at the mouth. There’s nothing groundbreaking on “Paper Airplane,” but, for real, this is Alison Krauss. She doesn’t really need to be innovating, nor do we expect that. The songs here are solid, and they are pretty as all get-out. It’s a good disc.

“Paper Airplane” is the sort of release that doesn’t really need reviews, because people are going to buy it whether anyone says it’s good or not. But trust me, it’s good. —Stephen Carradini
