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.

Maserati

The members of Athens, Ga., four-piece Maserati forego vocals in favor of bringing their expansive melodies and muscular, yet intuitive percussion to the spotlight. They blend ambient rhythms and modern dance rock with a Seventies groove to create highly emotive tracks on its latest release, "Inventions for the New Season."

"When we have an idea (for a song), we have a couple key points we want to hit," guitarist Coley Dennis said. "We have a couple hooks and need to bridge them, so we'll have the foundation. It's pretty easy to keep it where we want without getting too off base."

NEW ALBUM
Maserati specifically used the new album to test song structures, seeking out various ways to introduce and fade out instruments as well as playing with or defying basic pop formulas.

"We're not interested in doing the same thing twice. We want to keep evolving," Dennis said. "The first song that inspired us for this album was 'Inventions.' We had a long repetition of guitars " five or six minutes go by before the drums kick in. We wanted to have a lot of space building with just guitars."

Lately, instrumental bands are finding solid footing and audiences for their music.
"The crowds are pretty diverse. They're not too strange," Dennis said. "We get a lot of younger kids into the instrumental bands coming out now, then you get 40-year-olds who were into Pink Floyd when they were their kids' age." "Charles Martin
