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.

Tampa rockers The Almost end their national tour with a stop at the Diamond Ballroom


Lauren Parajohn December 13th, 2007

Tampa Bay, Fla., rock band The Almost is almost here, set to make its last tour stop Thursday in Oklahoma City at the Diamond Ballroom.   The Almost perform with The Starting Line, Sick Puppi...

h. After recruiting longtime friend Alex Aponte as bassist, the rest of the band fell together easily, and before long, "Southern Weather" made its way onto the Billboard 200, debuting at No. 29.

 

Complete with Dusty Redmon and drummer Kenny Bozich, The Almost is touring the country to share their music to sold-out crowds.

 

The Almost has shared the state with The Starting Line before, and the two bands also share the same manager and record label. Although The Almost is known for catchy lyrics and an accessible, radio-friendly rock style, band members hope fans take at least some meaning from the music. "“Lauren Parajohn
