IndianGiver - Understudies

There’s a difference between being derivative and being inspired by something, a line a lot of artists can’t seem to find — or at least don’t care to.

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.

Snow Patrol is in the midst of a major worldwide surge in popularity, helped by opening for U2 on tour and having their breakout single, "Chasing Cars," appear on "Grey's Anatomy."
"Twenty-two million people watch 'Grey's Anatomy,' drummer Jonny Quinn said. "My girlfriend lives in Austin and that's how her whole office found out about Snow Patrol."
"Chasing Cars" didn't stand out as a single while they were recording, but they knew it was connecting when they started playing it on stage.
"The audience caught on to it pretty quickly, and usually an audience lets you know how it will work on a broader scale," he said.
The band recently recorded a song for the "Spider-Man 3" soundtrack. Snow Patrol's ability to produce swelling emotions that are both faltering and urgent should mesh better with the tone of the franchise " whose previous soundtracks were led by Nickleback and Dashboard Confessional " and push the band further toward its ultimate goal.
"A complete world domination stadium tour," Quinn said. "We really aren't too worried about it. We let labels and agents worry about that. It is good to move up to bigger venues every time you return to a place. It lets you know things are moving along." "Charles Martin
