Dustin Prinz - Eleven

Few musicians take the time to master their instrument in the way that Oklahoma City singer-songwriter Dustin Prinz has; he’s a guitar virtuoso in every sense of the word, and Eleven gives him the chance to show just how far he can push that skill.

Horse Thief – Fear in Bliss

Listening to Horse Thief’s previous release — the haphazardly melodramatic Grow Deep, Grow Wild — felt like a chore. Whatever potential the Oklahoma City folk-pop act demonstrated on the EP was obscured behind a formulaic, contrived and ultimately hollow cloud. But it at least offered a glimmer of promise for a band consisting of, frankly, five pretty talented dudes. Critics saw it; the band’s management saw it; its current label, Bella Union, saw it; and its increasingly fervid fan base saw it.

Colourmusic — May You Marry Rich

There’s always a sense of danger when debuting songs in a live setting and playing them well. Without having heard the studio versions, expectations are set according to the live incarnations. But capturing the breadth of free-flowing atmosphere and sheer volume on a disc, vinyl or digital file isn’t the easiest thing to do, especially for a band as vociferous as Colourmusic.

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters

As titles go, Churches into Theaters is an apt descriptor for the debut album from Oklahoma City rockers Em and the MotherSuperiors. It’s a reverential record, one that shares the gospel of classic rock, blues and soul but embraces the need to refashion it for modern times, channeling The Dead Weather, Grace Potter and Cage the Elephant along the way.

There's a good reason one-third of Cross Canadian Ragweed's releases are live albums: It is first and foremost a live act.

Although lead singer and songwriter Cody Canada acknowledged the group's live albums are its best sellers because of the band's road reputation, the last two studio discs have crept up.

As the band prepares for the release of its new disc, "Mission California," what better way than to promote the record than with an Oklahoma City show, at a club they partially own, where the cost of the CD is also the price of admission?

NEW ALBUM
Formed in Yukon in 1994 and fermented up in Stillwater, CCR is comprised of four guys who grew up together, and continuously collaborate with an ever-expanding family circle of fellow musicians. For the new album, however, things changed.

"We went to California to get away from everybody we knew," Canada said. "That's the meaning of the title. It was our mission to get away and make the record."

Canada and his compadres expect to go down in a storm at Friday's Wormy Dog Saloon show. Being co-owners of the joint makes it friendly territory, and it has a conducive vibe made all the more noticeable because of the social lubricants consumed in quantity there.

"You've gotta get there right at showtime," Canada said, speaking as a performer. "Otherwise, you might get too drunk too quickly." "Tory Troutman
