IndianGiver - Understudies

There’s a difference between being derivative and being inspired by something, a line a lot of artists can’t seem to find — or at least don’t care to.

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.

Despite being a tabloid fixture thanks to a short-lived engagement with socialite Nicole Richie, modesty is the name of the game for DJ AM.
 
"I am not famous," he said. "I am just a DJ and have not done anything worthy of having that title in my book. It does make me feel self-conscious when people are staring and not dancing. I am not much to look at, so I think they should just dance."
 
BLAZING TRAILS
SKKY Bar resident DJ, DJ Motion thinks DJ AM is very important to the DJ scene.
 
"He has set a new standard/style," Motion said. "With AM in the spotlight, club owners can now see how important their DJ can be to the club."
 
Not one to do many mix CDs for release, DJ AM " née Adam Goldstein " is the frenzied type who prefers on-the-fly and in-the-club mixing.
 
"I will do in Oklahoma what I normally do," said AM, with 10,000 songs to throw down at a moment's notice. "I always cater to the crowd, but if they only want country, I'm fucked." "Joshua Michael Torres
