Album Review: Father John Misty—God’s Favorite Customer

Father John Misty, né Joshua Tillman, is a talented guy. Singer, songwriter, guitarist, drummer, producer...the guy can do it all. Unfortunately for him (or, more accurately, for the listener), simply being able to write and perform a song doesn't automatically make it compelling. While there's nothing inherently bad about the songs on God's Favorite Customer, … Continue reading Album Review: Father John Misty—God’s Favorite Customer

Album Review: Snail Mail—Lush

A dreamy, dissociative collection of lamentations written by ingenue (b. 2000) Lindsey Jordan.

Concert Review: New Politics/DREAMERS/The Wrecks 02/24/18—The Truman, Kansas City, MO

Energy is an incredibly valuable commodity in live music. Virtually impossible to manufacture, it's either there or it's not, and generally speaking the crowd will gladly let you know which. Most often a crowd is won or lost depending on the energy the band exudes on stage, and Saturday's show at Kansas City's newest venue, … Continue reading Concert Review: New Politics/DREAMERS/The Wrecks 02/24/18—The Truman, Kansas City, MO
