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.

Although many might recognize the California-based indie-rock band Pinback because of a song they did for Fox network's teen television drama "The O.C," the themes the band explores in other tunes might take more than a prime-time slot to fully understand.

Pinback co-founder Rob Crow said being an endorsement for a large corporate entity isn't necessarily a bad thing.

"It all depends what it is, what it's for, how's it used," Crow said. "Having a song on a television show that I don't watch isn't really that evil of a thing because I'd ask friends, 'Like, hey, do you know this show?' And they go, 'Oh, I love that show.' 'OK, you can use it.' It's not like they're gonna take my song, you know, and slaughter cattle with it."

CONCERT
The twosome will be in Oklahoma City Friday for a performance with drone-metal band OM at the Bricktown Ballroom.

Crow said that music is his only job, and while for some, that may sound like a dream come true, there can be snags in realizing this goal.

"It's terrifying because I have a family," Crow said.

But he said he takes the responsibility in stride. "Bryan Mangieri
