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.

Gentle Ghost
Noon Sunday, Main Stage, 100 Block of West Main Street

Eerie guitar riffs and ethereal vocals blend into peaceful harmony for Norman-based Gentle Ghost.

The band evolved from the mind of Sethy McCarroll, current drummer for Toil and Trouble and bassist for both Student Film and Umbrellas. For his latest project he organized, he put himself on guitar and lead vocals and works as the sole songwriter. The rest of the band was handpicked to complement and tolerate his musical approach and creative style: guitarist and vocalist Brady Smith, bassist and vocalist Scott Harper, pianist (and Oklahoma Gazette music writer) Becky Carman, guitarist Tyler Huskerson and drummer Adam Huskerson.

On its MySpace page, the group describes itself on as "born of artfulness and intent manifested in raucous feedback, sweet melody, visual stimulation and physical strain." For now, McCarroll is keeping his creation semi-off the spotlight, playing mostly small-scale, local shows with the possibility of some regional gigs in the near future.

The group debuted its first album, "Family," last week in a limited release after a live performance during Record Store Day at Guestroom Records in Norman. "Emily Hopkins
