Kansas City Music

Since moving out to The City of Fountains (yes, Kansas City), I’ve been to a handful of shows but haven’t caught any local bands. Oddly enough, I discovered Lawrence, KS band Quiet Corral in Austin at our SXSW party and have been enamored with their 2010 self-titled EP and their latest single, “City Steep,” released earlier this year.

Their sound fits perfectly into the folk-rock invasion that has become the latest crave. As I made my way through their EP, I drew comparisons to The Decemberists (Lonely Company, City Steep) and Elvis Perkins (One, Two, Three, Oh) with the pop appeal of Delta Spirit and Mumford and Sons.

They have some tour dates listed on their site, including a stop at the Wakarusa Festival.
