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.

Tuesday's show at Norman's Opolis marks the first time playing in Oklahoma for the Miami, Fla., indie pop band The Postmarks.
 
Yet the band has ties with Flaming Lips manager Scott Booker and the Edmond-based music label he co-founded, World's Fair.
 
"We just sort of take each city as it comes along and kind of see what kind of riches it has to unveil," said Christopher Moll, chief songwriter.
 
REVIEWS
The band has received several favorable nods from the press, including rave reviews from Pitchfork Media and Spin magazine.
 
"I'm honored by it," he said. "It's something I've been working at a really long time, and it's just kind of shocking that it's kind of coming together the way it is. I'm kind of speechless, appreciative and just hoping that I have the opportunity to keep on doing this."
 
SUCCESS
Success didn't come overnight, however, as Moll has been doing music seriously since the late Eighties. He is 37 now, but he feels that he's at the right age for recognition, whereas a 19-year-old wouldn't know how to deal with the strain popularity produces.
"I don't know if I would have it any other way now," he said. "I'm really a firm believer things are meant to be the way that they happen." "Bryan Mangieri
