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.

The Morning After Girls — Alone

Reverb-heavy, song-lite rock


Rock

Stephen Carradini
Reverb’s been going through a revival lately. After the raw guitar tones of grunge killed the reverb pedal for the better part of 20 years, it’s been coming back everywhere.

The Del Toros — Come Down


Rock

Stephen Carradini
Informed equally by ’90s rock and modern pop, Tulsa-based The Del Toros infuse each of the 10 tracks on “Come Down” with a sharp sense of melody and a clear vision. Each of the songs is incredibly friendly to the ear, which is good — you’ll have them with you for a while afterward.

Exit Calm — Exit Calm

Shoegaze-type rock that excites


Rock

Stephen Carradini
The unrepentantly arty genre of shoegaze (so much so that they hate their own genre name, of course) died around 1993, when grunge reached its own zenith.

Feel Spectres — Feel Spectres


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Indie is quite an umbrella term in music classification, with everything from Animal Collective to Yo La Tengo falling somewhere within its scope. But then there are those quintessential alt/indie groups like Pavement and Pixies whose picture would appear beside the term in the latest edition of Merriam-Webster.
