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.

Mumford & Sons, Magnetic Zeros to headline September music festival in Guthrie.

Zach Hale February 5th, 2013

Grammy-nominated folk-rock sensations Mumford & Sons are coming to Oklahoma. The British four-piece band will perform Saturday, Sept. 7 in Guthrie as one leg of the Gentlemen of the Road tour.

Guthrie is one of only five cities in the world — three in the United States — that will host the tour.

The mini-festival will span two nights, with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros performing Friday, Sept. 6. Other confirmed featured guests are Alabama Shakes, The Vaccines, Willy Mason, Bear's Den and Half Moon Run, with more to be announced.

Mumford & Sons guitarist Winston Marshall told Oklahoma Gazette today that the event will have a celebratory, communal feel.

"The goal is to bring people together to celebrate a specific town through music," Marshall said. "It's to bring people to somewhere they'd not been before to celebrate all the things we love. … We love places we've never been to before. Your country, for example, is fucking mental and we love it."

He added that he especially looks forward to his first trip to the Sooner State.

"People are more openly enthusiastic [in America]. I think generally there's less cynicism in your country. Also, people are prepared to travel. That's an American thing, I think," Marshall said. “Guthrie, specifically, is a town that lots of musicians rave about. They're like, 'It's fucking awesome; it's mental,' and that's why we want to go there. That's why we love touring."

Two-day tickets are $109 and go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday, exclusively at Gentlemen of the Road’s website. —Zach Hale
