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.

Works of art rarely seen on American soil are now on exhibit in Oklahoma City University's Wanda L. Bass Music Center Atrium.
 
Turkish ceramists Ibrahim Erdeyer and Mehmet Gürsoy have about 35 pieces on display at "Modern Masters: Turkish Ceramics," running through April 29.
 
RARELY SEEN
"The ceramics are very fragile, so you don't get to see them all that often. There's no really large-scale importing of them into the United States," said David Evans, dean of the Petree College of Arts and Sciences. "They are extremely beautiful. I have great hope that what is really one of the world's great artistic and design traditions will get a wider audience here in Oklahoma City."
 
But more than just getting to see unique art, Evans said viewers also will get to see art that is of great quality.
 
"They represent a high point in a very long tradition," he said of Erdeyer and Gürsoy. "The two artists that are here are probably two of the five or six best artists working in this medium today." "Krista Nightengale
