IndianGiver - Understudies


Indie

Joshua Boydston
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


Pop

Joshua Boydston
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.

Em and the MotherSuperiors — Churches into Theaters


Rock

Joshua Boydston
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.

Oklahoma Cloud Factory — Ancestral Ghosts


Indie

Joshua Boydston

There’s a cinematic quality to Oklahoma Cloud Factory’s debut album, Ancestral Ghosts, one that indie-bent folk-rock outfits always seem to be grasping at. But thanks to a fun set of sonic idiosyncrasies, OCF lands on a different terrain than that of Band of Horses or Lord Huron.
