Review: Archeology- Memorial

Unless I secure a designated driver, I'm not going to see Archeology when they perform seven miles from my home tonight. I'm not drinking. Rather, I'm so sleep-deprived that I'm actually hallucinating. I don't trust myself to make the trip in the dark. Memorial, Archeology's new album, contains the same sort of lush folk-based pop that has made Mumford & Sons and Blind Pilot fledgling stars. I hope to have sweet dreams about the Portland band's music tonight.

I'd almost forgotten just how much I love The New Pornographers. Here's my review of last night's concert in Lawrence.

I reviewed Alaturka's performance Sunday at Jardine's.

Ultimate Fakebook is offering their new album as a free download. (Tip via The Pitch.)

Bluesman Phillip Walker died July 22.

"The queen of the bolero," Olga Guillot, died earlier this month.

Kansas City Click: As noted above, Archeology appears Tuesday at The Record Bar.

Remember Sister Hazel? The band will be on the Power & Light stage Wednesday.

Abstract Rude plays The Record Bar on Thursday.

Sister Hazel also has a free album out, "20 in 10," on Amazon's digital samplers. Pleasant background stuff.

Pretty smart. Thanks for the tip, Andrew.
