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.

The Walkmen, Peelander-Z to headline Norman Music Festival 4


Local bands to be announced this week

Stephen Carradini February 14th, 2011

Norman Music Festival has announced via Facebook that NYC indie-rock band The Walkmen will be headlining NMF4, scheduled for April 28-30. Japanese pop-punk act Peelander-Z also will be playing the main stage.

According to Holly Jones, NMF publicity chair, the approximately 150 local bands playing the festival will be announced in the next week. In all, some 200 musicians will perform on 12 stages.

The festival coordinators are playing coy with the rest of the main stage, as well as the headliner of the second stage.

“We’ll release them as we feel like it,” Jones said. “Probably not in the next week or so.”

She also noted that Facebook and Twitter will be most likely places for news of main-stage bands to break.

“We like to show love to our fans,” Jones said.

The full schedule will be announced in the beginning of April.

The Walkmen last played in the metro in October 2009 at Meacham Auditorium in Norman, while Peelander-Z played The Conservatory last October. —Stephen Carradini
