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.

Not in the Face! debuts in Oklahoma at Blue Note Lounge

Gazette staff June 15th, 2011

Oklahoma City, you now have a chance to get a taste of what Austin, Texas, can’t stop lapping up. The high-energy musical duo Not in the Face! makes its Sooner-state debut tonight at Blue Note Lounge, 2408 N. Robinson.

Alive since 2009, the act is as eclectic as its stated influences: “The Sonics, Dick Dale, Muddy Waters, Tom Petty, Elvis, and the entire ‘Dirty Dancing’ soundtrack.”

For the time of your life, you may want to attend to witness its blend of roots-rock rhythm and blues with a Texas redneck attitude.

NITF!’s debut album, “Bikini,” was released last year, only to sell out in the first night. Last week marked its re-release, as the group embarked on its summer tour.

The show stars at 10 p.m. For more information, call 600-1166 or visit thebluenotelounge.com. —Gazette staff
