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.

OKSee in 2011: The 7 worst song lyrics

One last list for you.

By Matt Carney December 28th, 2011

As it so happens, they’re all from the same song.

And also as it so happens, that song came from the mind of, which is no surprise when you consider his propensity for recording outright terrible music. Stale rhymes, pathetic grabbing-at-straws repetition, leaning on a boner as a shock-value crutch, scatological tendencies — it’s all good for ol' Will! Just be sure to watch that video, which probably made Adam Levine regret ever telling the entire world that he has moves like Mick Jagger.

7. “I’ma kill the game, leave the rest in pieces / now everybody want my recipes,” — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

6. “Oh my goodness / this beat is so hard,”* — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

5. “I go hard / statues,” — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

4. “Hard like geometry / trigonometry / this is crazy psychology!” Mick Jagger — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

3. “I woke up in the mornin’ / hard like mornin’ wood in the mornin’”

2. “I’ma go hard like a motherfuckin’ boner,” — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

1. “This beat is the shit / feces,” — “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”

*Editor’s note: The beat is, in fact, not hard at all.
