Kansas City Here I Come
A list of releases worth checking out from currently active artists from my hometown of Kansas City and its surrounding areas.
Is Paris Burning
Is Paris Burning
Sounds like early Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult. KC has been on a great stoner rock kick for a second.
Out of control American hc/punk rock 'n roll.
One of the few decent pop-punk bands we have.
UK/pogo influenced hardcore.
The latest release from Kansas City's best noise rock band. Recommended if you like Unsane, Helmet, Melvins, etc.
Rat Bastard (KC)
Me Ves Y Sufres
The second and final EP from the still fairly new hc/punk band. Younger dudes too.
One of my favorite Kansas City rappers. KC doesn't really have its own style of rap so Gee borrows from a few places, mainly California. A great debut.
Weird fun pop mixed with 90's Dino Jr. riffs.
Members of many local hc/punk bands playing 70's post-punk type stuff. Guitars sound like sirens on this.
If you like Burger Records or any of Ty Segall's bands.
Dark Ages (US)
Final release from KC hardcore pioneers. Very moody, winding hc, similar to Die Kreuzen.
One of the best emo/skramz releases from here in a while. I think they're changing their name to Hoser or something.
The singer is a dad but that won't stop the band from making crazy, blistering 90's hardcore a la Converge.
Sick ass hc/punk. Members of Dirty Work and Sucked Dry.
Jorge Arana Trio
Very tight experimental jazz shit.
Kickass NYHC/Warzone-sounding hardcore. Almost straight edge. 7" coming soon.
Time Has Gone
LP from KC/Chicago hardcore titans.
Grungey/shoegazey rock from some hc kids.
Maps For Travelers
Change Your Name
Real solid indie rock vets.
Let The Miracles Begin
New band from local garage rockers.
KC indigo rap.
Hearts Of Darkness
Afro-funk a la Fela Kuti.
Seven Steps To Hell
Great indie/garage/folk tunes from one of my best buds who got shipped off to boarding school for a year.
The Casket Lottery
Real eerie indie rock/emo from other veterans.
