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.

T.I. - T.I. vs. T.I.P.


None December 2nd, 2010

Atlanta rapper' and self-touted King of the South' T.I.'s new album "T.I. vs T.I.P." doesn't steal the throne from his Grammy-nominated 2006 album "King," though it manages to rule over most other commercial hip-hop on the charts right now.

The record is billed as the two personalities of T.I.' one representing a laid-back businessman and the other a loose-cannon gangster' and it's clear that the feisty, pistol-packing hustler is a lot more fun.


"You Know What It Is" features Wyclef Jean as a producer and performer' a siren string line underlines T.I.'s characteristic Southern drawl woven with reggae grooves.

The first single from the record, "Big Shit Poppin' (Do It)," produced by Mannie Fresh (Juvenile, Hot Boys, Lil' Wayne), is catchy in an annoying, "can't wait for the ringtone" kind of way.


Jay-Z, Eminem, Nelly and Busta Rhymes also make appearances on "T.I. vs. T.I.P," which actually doesn't hurt the songs as much as it could. It's no "King," but T.I. still reigns supreme."Joe Wertz
