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.

'I'm Amazed' by this band


Flick through shots of My Morning Jacket's one-night stand at Brady Theater.

By Matt Carney December 7th, 2011

Last night, OKSee packed up in the car and drove to that magical land of great concert venues and enormous QuikTrips to catch My Morning Jacket's two-hour-plus Brady Theater set. 

The band played 10 of the 11 tracks on its excellent new album, "Circuital," and touched on highlights from just about every one of its other albums. MMJ ditched "Run Thru"'s slow buildup, cutting right into the gnarled bass riff that's the gut of the song, lap-slid their way through "Strangulation" and completely blew the roof off the place with "Holdin' on to Black Metal."

Check out my photos and the setlist:



"Victory Dance"
"Circuital"
"It Beats 4 U"
"First Light"
"I'm Amazed"
"At Dawn"
"Wonderful"
"Outta My System"
"You Wanna Freak Out"
"Off the Record"
"Golden"
"Dondante"
"Movin' Away"
"Smokin' from Shootin'"
"Run Thru" (end part)
"Strangulation"
"Touch Me I'm Going to Scream, Pt. 2"
"Gideon"
ENCORE BREAK
"Wordless Chorus"
"The Day Is Coming"
"Masterplan"
"Holdin' on to Black Metal"
"One Big Holiday"
