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.

Tom Quinn's love of Pink Floyd has manifested into tribute band The Pink Floyd Experience.

Their intense stage show routinely tours the nation, complete with dazzling lighting effects, projection screens, smoke, surround sound and a huge inflatable pig.

"With the surround sound, you feel like you're in a huge set of earphones where just the sounds are just swirling all around," Quinn said. "The seats start to shake and your rib cage starts to rattle, and basically, you close your eyes and you're hearing the best of Pink Floyd from your record collection."

GUITAR HERO
Quinn said he was always fascinated by Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, and did his best to emulate his style.

"From the get-go, he was my guitar hero; he was my mentor," he said. "He was the guy I sought to play like and sound like."

He tried to emulate Gilmour's sound during his career as a professional musician, even when he had to play dance music at fraternity parties.

Eventually, Quinn moved to San Diego and started the first Pink Floyd cover band in the San Diego area before similar groups popped up around the world. "Bryan Mangieri
