Solange: A Seat at the Table – Fierce and important and somehow dreamy. Nick Cave: Skeleton Tree — A document of time about grief and aging from a brilliant and talented mind. Abra: Princess — The Duchess of Darkwave writes songs on her computer then releases them on Periscope. And I’m okay with that. Physic Heat: […]
Honorable Mention: Summertime 06 by Vince Staples. The only reason this record is an honorable mention is because it didn’t hit wax until the day before my list last year was made. Vince Staples might single-handedly save hip-hop, and he’s only warming up with Summertime ’06. 10 Princess by Abra. Technically an EP, Princess by ABRA is dark […]
It’s that time of year. The Plaza has outlined their buildings with lights, the weather is (finally) changing, people are overeating and over-shopping. 2016 is almost over. And with the closing of the year comes top ten list. To end Local Week, I want to count down my top ten songs from local musicians. There […]
There is not a sound system big enough to contain the riff wizardry that is Keef Mountain. The Kansas City duo makes some of the hardest hitting, stony songs this side of the Mason-Dixon. Their self-titled debut on The Company is chock-full of riff worship, pummeling beats, and addled lyrics–the makings of a perfect stoner […]

We are celebrating Halloween with live music and a costume contest! Scruffy & the Janitors 7pm Always all ages, always free!
When Halloween falls on a Monday, it’s both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, the day itself gets short changed when it comes to trick or treating and adult guising and mumming. But on the other hand, the celebrations last all weekend. We’ve put out a show calendar leading up to Halloween. […]
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 […]
Yeah, blink-182 just reissued their discography, James Blake dropped a masterpiece, Sleep’s Holy Mountain has its first official vinyl release, and so many other records hit our shelves, but this Saturday is all about cassettes. Cassette Store Day celebrates the other physical medium in the world. With exclusive releases and special deals on cassettes, Saturday […]
There’s something subversive and fun about Replay Records. The resurrected Lawrence label puts out some of the most beautiful 7″ I’ve seen, all while deliberately breaking genre continuity. Radkey coexists with Oils; Psychic Heat coexists with Hospital Ships. Without a single aesthetic to unite the label, Replay Records is free to experiment, to change, which […]
