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.

Guster

Dream-pop band Guster is currently on its Campus Consciousness Tour, playing its music and promoting environmental awareness at several universities.
 
"The Campus Consciousness Tour is more about informing people who come to the show on how they can emit less and help the environment," drummer Brian Rosenworcel said.
 
ACTIVISM IN ACTION
But the guys of Guster aren't just offering their opinions and leaving it up to the students to find out how to get involved; they're demonstrating them.
 
The eco-village set up at each stop on the tour includes:
" a tour of Guster's biodiesel tour bus,
" recycling stations,
" a global warming video contest,
" food drives, and
" a town hall meeting where students and faculty can speak with members of Guster about campus sustainability.
 
Ever the environmentalists, the band members even use rechargeable batteries to power their instruments.
 
"There's a lot of interest and it's a good time for us to reach people," Rosenworcel said. "There's a lot to learn and the students are eager to hear it." "Graham Lee Brewer
