Leggy, T-Rextasy, Westeners @ Replay Lounge

Tomorrow night, Replay Lounge will host three bands that collide pop, indie, punk, and garage to make music that absolutely rips. Leggy and T-Rextasy will be joined Lawrence’s own Westerners for what guarantees to be the best way to start the week. While all the bands use similar threads to create their music, the way […]

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 […]

The Philistines Album Release @ Replay Lounge

In case you missed it, The Philistines put out their debut on The Record Machine about a month ago. The TL;DR of it is The Backbone of The Night rocks. Layering classic tube-warmed psych-tones with slick indie pop hooks, the album unfurls equally as a meandering jam and a collection of tunes that stay stuck in […]

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 […]

Momma’s Boy and Scruffy & The Janitors @ Replay

Some of my favorite shows ram together aesthetics. The harmonies and dissonances between bands on eclectic shows do well to spark connection. In a sense, the disparity between genres helps to define and blur their lines simultaneously–a necessary thing for any art to do. This Thursday at Replay Lounge, one of those shows is taking […]

Eyes of Iolite, Hossferatu, and Inner Alter @ Replay

I’ve written before how diverse and great Kansas City’s heavy scene is. Specifically about Ignis Gratis’ shoegazy, heavy punk and Hossferatu‘s blues influenced stoner metal. As phenomenal as it is listening to some of the heaviest bands on wax, it is even more gratifying to see those bands pour out their aural doom from the […]

Ebony Tusks and Netherfriends @ Replay

Ebony Tusks is a force when the trio takes the stage. The way the three dudes spin out their grimy, industrial beats and heavy-hitting lyrics makes their shows visceral and raw. Likewise, Netherfriends can command a stage like no other. The Chicago based musician combines the neo-hippie vibe of Mac Demarco while delving into something […]

Psychic Heat, Arc Flash, Phantom Head and Wides @ Replay

Tomorrow at Replay Lounge, Wides, Phantom Head, Arc Flash, and Psychic Heat will take the stage. Moving from the grimiest end of the psych spectrum to the poppiest, the bands will offer a sound for everyone and a live show that is as heated as their songs. The Thursday show will truly be something never […]

Equally split between danceable synthetic textures and boisterous metal, the […]
