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.

Yo ho ho and a flagon of rum

English folk/party band Skinny Lister joins Dropkick Murphys for a rowdy St. Patrick’s Day tour of the Midwest.


Music

Devon Green
A few years ago, Skinny Lister was enjoying mild success in its home country before being discovered in a hotel parking lot at SXSW. Already the darlings of the festival set in Europe, the band was discovered by the Dropkick Murphys’ manager, who witnessed the rowdy 5-piece in what lead singer Lorna Thomas described as “the world’s only mandolin solo in a glass lift.” The band was notorious for setting up anywhere and everywhere and playing to anyone who would listen. This approach, especially at SXSW, proved to be an effective one.
