Rachel Mallin and The Wild Type at RecordBar, 5/11/17

Rachel Mallin and The Wild Type recently crushed their set at a sold out RecordBar. It was the last date on their tour with the Greeting Committee. It is wonderful to see two of Kansas City’s best bands touring together, bringing those real KC vibes to people around the country. “White Girls” was my favorite song of 2016. Rachel is a past interview subject of mine and was my most frequent live guest of last year. Check out this live version of the excellent “White Girls.”

Rachel Mallin and The Wild Type Live at RecordBar 7/29/16

Rachel Mallin and The Wild Type is a Kansas City-based indie rock band. Songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Rachel Mallin’s lyrics are smart and biting. The band recently released their new EP Degenerate Matters. Live and on record, they bring the energy.

Rachel Mallin and The Wild Type’s “White Girls” is my favorite song of the year so far. The track is getting radio play from Kansas City to Sweden. Lyrically, Mallin brings the snark and lays the smackdown on stereotypical white girls, “There’s a special place in hell for girls like you/Go out on the weekends/Prey upon weak men that haven’t got a girl to come home to.” This heat is counterbalanced by an upbeat, indie surf rock vibe. It’s the kind of song Best Coast would love to write. It’s always great when sharp lyrics and an energetic groove combine to form a quality song. “White Girls” is one of the year’s best.

Theta Intellect at Middle of the Map Fest 2016

Middle of the Map Fest 2016 showcased a diverse range of artists. Here are some of my highlights from Friday at Middle of the Map Fest:

Theta Intellect opened up CrossroadsKC on Friday with a mix of funk, soul and hip hop.

Past interview subjects Rachel Mallin and the Wild Type won over the crowd at CrossroadsKC with a set of shimmery indie rock jams. Their tight songs sounded beautiful wafting through the breeze. It was one of the best sets of the festival.

Past interview subjects Not a Planet played the first ever set at the new RecordBar. Their high-energy  rock had the crowd moving. The new RecordBar is intimate and the location will make the venue a draw for quality indie rock in the Crossroads.

The set by Vince Staples at the Midland was on point, but poorly attended. Less than 1,000 people watched the acclaimed rapper.

Cold War Kids brought their hooky indie rock to CrossroadsKC. It was my first Cold War Kids gig in nine years. They still bring the heat live. Classic tunes like “First” lit the crowd up.
