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.

NPR's 'From the Top' to record live taping at OCU

Rod Lott May 11th, 2011

Hosted by Christopher O’Reilly, NPR’s popular “From the Top” music program will record a live taping at 3 p.m. Sunday at Oklahoma City University’s Kirkpatrick Auditorium to air in September.

The Norman North High School Chorale was selected to be among the show’s slate of young performers from across the country. According to Susan Clark, development director for KCSC-FM 90.1, the group is “extremely excited” and will perform Eric Whitacre’s “Water Night,” under the direction of Tony Gonzalez.

“A radio show like ‘From the Top’ that has been on the air for over a decade is proof that classical music is not a dead language,” said Brad Ferguson, KCSC manager.

Aired on approximately 250 public radio stations nationwide, the show garners an audience of more than 700,000 listeners weekly. KCSC airs it 2 p.m. Sundays.

For tickets to the taping, call 208- 5227 or visit okcu.edu/ticketoffice. —Gazette staff
