Black Friday With Mike Doughty

The weather’s getting cooler, the leaves are falling, large men are smashing into other large men for large sums of money. So that can only mean one thing: Thanksgiving and the holiday season are almost upon us. And after we stuff ourselves with turkey/tofurkey, we can fight the masses for deals on Black Friday. At Mills […]

Record Store Day Cometh Part VI

Record Store Day is looming. The annual event is, for vinyl-philes, prom, Independence Day, graduation, and retirement wrapped into a single day each year. But we already knew that.

Westend Recording Presents: Amplify KC

We talk a lot about how vibrant Kansas City’s music scene, and it certainly is. As a city, our scenes are deep and varied. Between bars (and even between shows), you can hear hip hop metal, indie pop, punk, folk, country, jazz, and any off-shoot/hybrid genre you can think of. We have a number of […]

The Fog, Youth Pool, and Friends @ Mills Record Company

Tomorrow, Shuttlecock Magazine and Mills Record Company will host the concert to start 2016. Ranging from basement punk to rap, from shoegaze to guitar pop, this in store will definitely warm up this cold January. Killakee Kat makes some unforgiving punk. Sounding like a grimy version of The Locusts mixed with a quicker Menace Beach, […]

Mikal Shapiro @ Mills Record Company

This Saturday, Mills Record Company will be hosting Mikal Shapiro with special guest David Regnier (of Dead Voices and Ruddy Swain). The singer-songwriter seems equally comfortable using just her voice and acoustic guitar as she does backed by a full band. No matter how Mikal Shapiro arranges her songs, it’s clear they have a powerful […]

Ebony Tusks, Heartfelt Anarchy, and DEV3N Free Show

This Sunday, Ebony Tusks, Heartfelt Anarchy and DEV3N will put on a free show at recordBar. Considering all these acts make music as heavy and honest as the most polished acts today, the ability to see them on all on the same bill is something like a dream. That the show is free only sweetens […]

Metatone + Shawn E. Hansen and Sam Jones In Store

This Friday, Mills Record Company will be hosting an evening that straddles the line between experimentalism and at pop. The in store will feature Metatone and the duo Shawn E. Hansen and Sam Jones.

Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz

To be honest, when I heard that Miley Cyrus “had dropped a surprise album,” I was a bit skeptical. I was even more skeptical when I heard Wayne Coyne was involved. Don’t get me wrong, I love the saccharine, post-post-production glitz that is Miley Cyrus’ brand of pop, and I love The Flaming Lips’ deep […]

Foals What Went Down Listening Party

Foals has been making music for over a decade. The British rock band has made a living from mixing grungy blasts of fuzzed over guitar and cathedral-reverbed lead lines. The band’s lyrics jump from hook-filled emotion and texturing repetitions. Foals brings into their songs whatever they find interesting and so have a sound both expansive […]
