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.

Concert for Carina


Support two good causes in one night: local music and human trafficking awareness.

By Matt Carney March 8th, 2012

Much-loved Okie folkers O Fidelis are celebrating a proper release party for their 3-year-old debut EP on Friday night, but you’d be wrong to call it a cash grab.

The show (which will be supported by fun-pop dude Denver Duncan and Altus melody-punkers The Typist) is a benefit for a pair of charities. Half of the proceeds it generates will go to Oklahomans Against Trafficking Humans and the Carina Saunders Fund. 

From O Fidelis’ Brian Gililland: “The EP release portion is not nearly as important to us, frankly.”

So hop in and support a good cause that’s supported by good musicians! Grab tickets via Eventbrite and consider a donation to the Carina Saunders Fund at oathcoalition.org.
