The Life and Times

I'm not sure if anyone at The Life and Times show at Emo's on Monday could testify to how long the concert was, or how many songs were played. Everyone seemed to be happily swimming in the textures created by the three piece Kansas City indie rock outfit.

Eric Abert carefully tempered the distortion petals for his bass, Allen Epley's vocals took on a harmonious coo that wove in and out of his guitar, and drummer, Chris Metcalf formed a relentless backbone for all the songs. The result was a mesmorizing atmosphere of melodies that came in and out of focus. I would really keep an eye out for this band.
