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-folk act Cheyenne had recorded some tracks in New York that the members weren't satisfied with, so front man Jennings came back to Norman to fill out the rest of the album.

Here, he tapped the talents of musician friends, including former bandmate Ryan Lindsey, and to record at Chad Copeland's Black Watch Studios.

"It's funny: We're in the lion's den of coolness and just not feeling like we fit in at all. Especially (bandmate) Ben (King) and I, we got real interested in exploring " this is really hokey " but our heritage," Jennings said.

Since moving to New York, Jennings said he's grown more confident in his vocals. Now that they can glance back at their distant hometown as outsiders, they've gained a new perspective.

"Oklahoma themes are easier to write about and analyze when you're away," Jennings said. "You start looking at Oklahoma from the point of view of the East Coast because you're there." "Charles Martin
