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.

For better or worse, the garage-rock act The Willowz has been lumped in with the California psychedelic scene.

"I think it's heavily related to the way we look," said vocalist and guitarist Richie James Follin. "We do occasionally do drugs, but we're trying to make music we like to listen to and that's not boring for us to play on tour."

TOURING
Due to the large amount of downtime involved with touring, Follin said he generally gets a lot of writing down, but rarely records.

"It doesn't really matter (when you write) " just when something inspires you, or extreme boredom," he said. "Being on tour, you can write all day, but when you want to turn it into something, you don't have your studio."

The boys will be bringing some extra recording gear with them on the road this time.

"We got a shitload of gear. We got two studios, hundreds of guitars, thousands of amps, trillions of "¦ we got a lot of shit," Follin said. "We're not worried about getting ripped off, though. We carry guns." "Charles Martin
