A Look in The Local Bin: Convoker

It’s no secret that Kansas City and Lawrence have a pretty stellar metal scenes. From Sharp Weapons to Bummer, from Hossferatu to Gnarly Davidson, there’s no shortage on riffage in our Midwestern music diet. Adding its instrumental doom to the mix, Convoker proves the heavy isn’t over in the middle of the country. The band […]

Record Store Day Favorite: Jazz Dispensary

So Record Store Day 2016 has come and gone. And after celebrating one of the coolest days for vinylphiles (and subsequently recovering), I think I have to say, without a doubt, one of my favorite releases was The Jazz Dispensary box set. The four LP boxset (all set on colored vinyl) boasts a cosmic journey […]

Orgone’s Beyond The Sun is an Instant Classic

There are few instances in which I get to use the term psychedelic soul. In fact, there’s only one. It’s Orgone‘s latest album, Beyond The Sun. The California band mixes the genres to create an (almost) hour of psychedelic frenzy caged in soul’s drum-forward structure. Put in another way, Beyond The Sun is one of the best overlooked […]

A Look in The Local Bin: Your Friend & Organized Crimes

There’s something to be said about the depth, the space that reverb drenched vocals add to music. Sometimes, increasing the room a song takes up is the absolute wrong choice–it only magnifies every mistake within the track. But sometimes it makes the song come alive, turns it into an entity that’s larger than life. Your […]

Baroness’ Purple Burns Like Milk and Gasoline

Not even catastrophe could stop Baroness‘ rock. A traumatic bus crash in 2012 saw the departure of two founding members and facilitated the band’s frontman, John Baizley, to reevaluate life. While almost four years ago, the crash looms just under the surface of the band’s latest album, Purple,–the first since the accident. Purple stays consistent with the band’s […]
