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.
1Is Paris Burning
Is Paris Burning

Indie rock
2Inner Altar
Vol I

Sounds like early Black Sabbath and Blue Oyster Cult. KC has been on a great stoner rock kick for a second.
3Beta Boys

Out of control American hc/punk rock 'n roll.
4Airport Novels

One of the few decent pop-punk bands we have.

UK/pogo influenced hardcore.
6Bummer (KS)

The latest release from Kansas City's best noise rock band. Recommended if you like Unsane, Helmet, Melvins, etc.
7Rat Bastard (KC)
Me Ves Y Sufres

The second and final EP from the still fairly new hc/punk band. Younger dudes too.
8Gee Watts

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.
9The Fog
Darkness USA

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.
11The Gorlons
The Gorlons

If you like Burger Records or any of Ty Segall's bands.
12Dark Ages (US)

Final release from KC hardcore pioneers. Very moody, winding hc, similar to Die Kreuzen.
13Lion House

One of the best emo/skramz releases from here in a while. I think they're changing their name to Hoser or something.
14Altered Beast

The singer is a dad but that won't stop the band from making crazy, blistering 90's hardcore a la Converge.
15Blind Dog

Sick ass hc/punk. Members of Dirty Work and Sucked Dry.
16Jorge Arana Trio

Very tight experimental jazz shit.
17Blindside USA
Demo 2014

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.
20Maps For Travelers
Change Your Name

Real solid indie rock vets.
21Phantom Head
Let The Miracles Begin

New band from local garage rockers.
22Aaron Alexander
Radiant Child

KC indigo rap.
23Hearts Of Darkness
Shelf Life

Afro-funk a la Fela Kuti.
24Bennett Weaver
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.
25The Casket Lottery
Real Fear

Real eerie indie rock/emo from other veterans.
