What I Like: the Blackbird Revue

The Blackbird Revue on a few of their favorite things.

Welcome to What I Like, our weekly chat with local musicians about their favorite things.

This week: the Blackbird Revue

The Blackbird Revue plays country-inspired ballads and adrenaline-ridden, soaring anthems fueled by ear-catching harmonies. The band is currently writing new material but won't start recording for a while. Stop by one of the Revue's shows, though, and you'll most likely catch a new tune. Buy the band's album, The Whaler & Other Stories, on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby or straight from the band.

More Record Store Day shots: the Lawrence scene

I arrived at Love Garden Sounds a smidgen before the long-loved Lawrence record store opened its doors to record-hungry music lovers. The RSD line went back about four storefronts, and people filed into the store at 10 a.m. on the dot. Once inside the store, early birds got their shot at the exclusives table.

Katlyn Conroy and Jordan Geiger cover Daniel Johnston's "Walking the Cow" in honor of Middle of the Map Fest

We've caught wind of a new local music blog that has cropped up in Lawrence recently, called I Heart Local Music. It has just put up a collaboration between Cowboy Indian Bear's Katlyn Conroy and Hospital Ships' Jordan Geiger, who are both covering a Daniel Johnston song in honor of the artist's appearance at the Middle of the Map Fest this weekend. Here are the two Lawrence songbirds, singing Johnston's "Walking the Cow," off his 1983 release, Hi, How Are You -- the same release that had labels in a bidding war over Johnston after Kurt Cobain sported a T-shirt with Johnston's album cover on it at the 1992 MTV VMAs.

(Another fun Daniel Johnston fact: We've also heard that Capybara is going to be backing Johnston on several songs at his Saturday-night performance.)

Baby Teardrops
  • Baby Teardrops

Matt Dunehoo may have moved on from his former Kansas City project, Doris Henson, a while ago; but we here at Wayward like to keep tabs on what our favorite formerly local musicians are up to these days. Dunehoo's new band, Baby Teardrops, is nominated in an online poll to be the next New York City artist of the month by indie-music mag The Deli. Based out of Brooklyn, the grunge-pop trio also includes Megan Thomas on bass and Gerry White on drums.

Set to release their debut album X Is for Love on April 12, Baby Teardrops could certainly use the media support from The Deli's poll -- and you can help them out with your vote.
