I’ve held a grudge against Oklahoma City since the Sonics were sold back in 2006 (fuck you Schultz, Bennet and McClendon), but recent newcomers Tallows might just be able to mellow my disdain. They sound a little like Fleet Foxes with a backbone, with the ability to grab the attention of people like myself who don’t usually listen to music with, you know, guitars and shit. This clearly isn’t my forte, but if “Soft Water” and “Small Talk” are any indication, these dudes are be going places. The second good thing to come out of OKC after The Flaming Lips? I think so. Stream/download/do whatever you want with their first two demos below.
