Judy Mills’ Top Ten Albums of 2016

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: […]

Top Ten Albums of 2016

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 […]

Top Ten Songs by Local Musicians

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 […]

Local Week: Keef Mountain

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 […]

Halloween Gets Strange @ Mills Record Company

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. […]

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 […]

A Look in The Local Bin: Replay Records

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 […]
