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.

DJ Switch has spun his way out of the club and onto the radio with Friday afternoon's "Beats for Lunch" program on KVSP-FM 103.5.
 
Program director for Perry Broadcasting Terry Monday said Switch's weekly show is an outlet for local unsigned talent and gives airtime to good mixes.
 
INSTANT STREET CRED
Tired of the same old scene, Monday thought that DJ Switch was exactly what his station needed.
 
"Younger kids don't know classic hip-hop," Monday said. "Switch's skills blew me away."
 
Switch said this is not your ordinary Oklahoma radio show, but a blend of good, funky hip-hop, mixed together live on air, with only two turntables and nothing but vinyl.
 
"This one guy wanted to take me to lunch after hearing me just once," Switch said. "It's amazing street cred after 30 minutes of show."
 
HAVING STANDARDS
"He goes from metal to Eighties New Wave, then to old-school funk, and then around to new-school hip-hop," DJ Shorty-P said. "The first show he spun, I stayed in my car and ate my lunch to listen to the whole thing."
 
Switch said that he just wants to play good music. 
 
"Just because it's new doesn't mean that it's good," he said. "You can show me your tits all you want, but I'm not gonna play 'Gold Digger."' "Joshua Michael Torres
