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.

Monroe Mustang - Monroe Mustang, The Imaginary Band, Regretfully Declines

None June 5th, 2008



In the late Nineties, Norman-based Monroe Mustang released a handful of quiet but polished albums of slow-core shoegazing records "¦ and then seemingly disappeared. The band is back (sort of) with its fifth album' its first since the dawn of the new millennium and an MP3-only release' even if its members are scattered across all corners of the globe, from Texas to Paris.

The baker's dozen tracks follow the Mustang formula of leisurely, languid guitars and purposely paced builds which seem to stroll to nowhere before your ears finally pick up on a melody that has snuck up on you. At that point, indifference should give way to invigorated.

"Fenced In," "Dispersion of Will" and "Vest" are headphone-ready highlights. It all may sound like Dramamine, but who said there's anything wrong with that?
