CD reviews

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.

VOTD: Whole lotta ‘Lover’


Watch laid-back local rockers Junebug Spade pranking and playing.

By Matt Carney January 9th, 2012

Yeah, so this new Junebug Spade video totally confirms the band’s reputation as fun-loving stoners.

“My Lover” alternates between silly sped-up and rewound shots of them dousing each other with water and what appears to be bags of flour; swirling, psychedelic food dye in what appears to be a toilet (for tripping on a budget!); and a cool, throwback film treatment that definitely doesn’t appear to be your typical DSLR fare. Nice work for matching your sound, gents!



And yeah, if Junebug Spade had a signature track, this one might just be it, all lazy licks and sexual angst before it kicks into a catchy, noisy chorus. Watch:
