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.

The duo Sugar Free Allstars is putting out its first album in two years, "Return of Dos Machos!"
 
The songs pack a heavy punch, with Chris Wiser and Rob Martin doing more with just an organ and drums than other bands do with a full rhythm section.
 
READY, SET, TOUR
Martin recently recorded with Steve Burns (aka Steve from "Blue's Clues") on a "top-secret project" he couldn't go into, but he did divulge "it was the most fun I've ever had in a studio."
 
The Allstars will be busy this year, touring the country and ping children's album for a summer tour of Oklahoma libraries:
" the Pioneer Library System in June, and
" the Metro Library System in July.
 
BRING 'DA FUNK
Over the years, they've gotten to play with lots of musicians, but their favorite session was with Fred Tackett of Little Feat, who worked with Bob Dylan and Frank Zappa.
 
"That was the funkiest we've ever been," Wiser said. "We haven't been that funky since."
 
"We won't ever be that funky again," Martin smirked. "Charles Martin
