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.

11:45 P.M., Saturday, Blackwatch Studios Stage

Odis arrived with a bang. The act debuted its first CD, "Feel," in 2008 to a sold-out show at the House of Blues in its Dallas hometown.

A mere two months later, Quick magazine named "Feel" as the Big Album of 2008, and The Fort Worth Star-Telegram designated it as one of the top 20 albums of 2008. Odis quickly gained attention in the Metroplex, with numerous local media outlets singing its praises and its fan base increasing steadily by the day.

The group has been touring for the past two and a half years, but plans to buckle down at the studio to release an EP in fall 2010 or early 2011. Eager for a distribution departure, Odis is contemplating a digital release of the EP to gauge the fans' reaction to the evolved sound. A full album will emerge sometime in 2011.

Odis' electric pop vibe evokes visions of the latest Maroon 5 blended with Prince and Curtis Mayfield. The band describes itself as "rock n' soul" with a "unique, retro rock" twist. "Emily Hopkins
