A Look in The Local Bin: The Conquerors’ Wyld Time

Every so often a band releases a record that perfectly blends melancholy and ecstasy. The Conquerors‘ High Dive Records debut, Wyld Time, is one of those records. From start to finish, its patchwork of fuzz-dusted psychedelic pop steps through time–bridging 60s’ and early aughts’ aesthetics to create something that transcends time-specific conventions. Wyld Time crackles and pops with […]

Lawrence Field Day Fest: Night Two

In any city you go to, the people of that city claim to have the best music scene in the country. So, when I first started going to shows in Lawrence, I was inevitably surrounded by LFK residents saying things like, “You’ll never find a music scene as wonderful as this one.” In one ear […]

A Look in The Local Bin: Psychic Heat

Psychic Heat’s debut LP, Sunshower, came out last month on High Dive Records. Since then, the record has barely left my turntable. Its fuzz-warmed guitars and concise yet meandering jams are inviting and filled with hooks. Its echoing vocals stay stuck in the mind for days. Just listening to Sunshower’s single, “Elixir,” makes me want […]

Fullbloods’ New Release and Shows

Fullbloods are no strangers to creating taut surf-pop. The Kansas City quartet is a super-group of sorts–featuring members of The ACBs, Everyday/Everynight, Oriole Post, and other groups–and so know a thing or two about putting together music. And this knowledge comes through on their latest High Dive release, Mild West. Mild West mixes the surfy vibes […]

The Conquerors Release Show @ Mills Record Company

In case you missed it, The Conquerors have a new single. And that single has a new video that was premiered on the Brooklyn based blog Still in Rock. The black and white to full technicolor homage to sock hops and the opening consciousness perfectly fits the song “You Must Be Dreaming,” which mixes a […]
