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.

New bands are born every second, so every little step to set one apart helps. Recently, high-energy modern rockers Hush Hush, Commotion got a big nudge in the right direction. The Oklahoma City five-piece won first place in this year's KHBZ-FM 94.7 "The Buzz's" March Bandness Battle of the Bands.

The band took the prize money straight into Norman's Bell Labs studio to cut an EP.

"It was fun," said front man Scott Michael. "But at the same time, it was a stressful time."

FUTURE PLANS
"Things never go according to plan," keyboardist Chris Lusk added. "Even though it didn't go according to plan, we are very content with the final product."

They will be unveiling the finished EP at a CD release show Saturday at the Bricktown Ballroom. As part of the prize package, they also got a spot at this year's Dfest in Tulsa, which will put them in front of industry reps scouting out new talent.

"The next step for the band is to get out on the road as much as possible following the CD release show, with more extensive touring in the fall and winter time," said Michael. "Get mostly in the Midwest and branch out more toward East and West coasts just to get our name out there." "Charles Martin
