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.

Many Oklahoma music fans have grown used to the state being passed over by big-label rockers. Luckily for fans of garage rockers Hot Hot Heat front man Steve Bays can relate.

"We grew up on a little island. It was a good population, but it was hard to get to and expensive for bands to make it to," Bays said. "So we grew up in an extremely appreciative state of music. It was always a big deal when a band we liked came through."

LOCAL SHOWS
Bays and much of the other bandmates hail from Victoria, British Colombia and have made their way through our humble little state a couple of times, and on both occasions, he could tell Oklahoma shared his love and appreciation for a good show.

"The last time we played in Oklahoma, I think it was called the Green Door. It was such a great show," he said. "And the time before that was just a few blocks down the road from there."

He said he remembers those small shows so vividly because of the eager fans.

"I remember because it was just so awesome. Both shows were really cool. Oklahoma definitely brings a good crowd, and that's what I'm tripping on more," he said. "Graham Lee Brewer
