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.

robzombieDon't forget to hydrate before Rob Zombie plays Tulsa Sunday. It's gonna be 'Hot as Hell'.

Before banging your head to the music of Rob Zombie, Five Finger Death Punch, Sevendust, Underoath and everybody else playing Sunday’s “Hot as Hell” festival in Tulsa, the organizers would like to share some information. We tore these tips straight from the press release:

1. “RE ENTRY WILL BE ALLOWED WITH TICKET AND WRISTBAND”

2. “MISTING TENTS WILL  BE AVAILABLE”

3. “CROWD WILL BE SPRAYED OFTEN WITH WATER FROM STAGE TO COOL DOWN”

4. “NO BLANKETS, ICE CHESTS, or UMBRELLAS”

5. “STAY HYDRATED”

6. “BRING SUNSCREEN”

7. “WEAR HATS”

Enjoy the show, readers! (Sucks about your umbrella, though, Ms. Poppins!) —Rod Lott
