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.

Indie-pop band Of Montreal will join Starlight Mints as headliners at this year's Norman Music Festival, organizers announced last week.

In a posting on the festival's Facebook page, organizers said the Athens, Ga., band has "been around for many years, and have played Norman a few times in the past."

"There's a reason why they've had 5 million song plays on MySpace," organizers wrote. "They write great tunes, and put on a big show."

Other Main Stage performers will be chosen in the weeks to come, organizers wrote. Acts for the "Okie-Dirt" stage were also named for the April 25 festival, and include Brandon Jenkins, Todd Snider, Camille Harp, Travis Linville, Resident Funk and Blue Turtle Seduction.

Organizers hope to fill five stages with 50 regional, local and national touring bands for the free festival. Like last year's inaugural event, acts will perform on outdoor stages set up on Norman's Main Street and on stages inside Opolis and Sooner Theatre. More than 13,000 people attended that first fest, which featured a reunited Chainsaw Kittens and indie-rock choir The Polyphonic Spree. "Joe Wertz
