A Look in The Local Bin: The Whiffs

Another super group has emerged. Featuring members from Nubiles, Wet Ones, and The Conquerors, The Whiffs make music that is pure fun. Melting together bits of The Ramones, The Kinks, and The Strokes, the Kansas City four piece’s debut cassette, Take A Whiff!, boils with lyrical and instrumental energy. Starting with “Baby Tonight,” the cassette quickly […]

London O’Connor Circles the Triangle

There’s something rough and entirely genuine about London O’Connor‘s debut album, O∆ (pronounced Circle Triangle). The album is centered around uber-catchy bedroom pop with hip hop currents and ambient textures. In other words, O∆ is the perfect album for the exploratory feeling that hangs to springs emerging coattails. The album opens with “OATMEAL.” Feeling like undiscovered gem from […]

Wides and Second Hand King @ Mills Record Company

It’s seldom that two bands that differ so much on the surface fit together as well as WIDES and Second Hand King. The latter prefers more controlled jazz-kissed hip hop, and the former is wild and noisy. That said, there’s some je ne sais quoi feeling that links the two acts. It could be their […]

Manor Fest 2 Sneak Peek

Summer is the official festival season. From Middle of The Map to Center of the City, from The Westport Roots festival to Porch Fest, Kansas City has more multiple day concert series than we collectively know what to do with.

BUMMER, Dodecad, Buildings, and Microdoser @ Chum Bucket

Summer is the season for house shows. Of course, they happen all the time, but there’s something about summer’s extended daylight, the sweat, the ability to be outside without freezing to death, the feeling of a cold beverage in the hand that make house shows all the more appealing. This Thursday, there’s going to be […]

Can’t We All Get Along: Shuttlecock vs. Center of The City

I feel like a child listening to his parents argue in the next room. Shuttlecock Magazine‘s contributing editor-in-chief, Aaron Rhodes, caught some heat from Kansas City punks for criticizing The Center of the City Festival. Which makes me wonder if Kansas City needs to learn to take negative criticism better. It seems in all of […]
