Local Music #3 - Blackout Gorgeous

Next in our line of Kansas City/Lawrence area bands is Blackout Gorgeous. Their music is a crazy mixture. From Hip-hop to jazz to classical to straight up rock, anytihng good can be considered an influence here. Dual vocals between Tim Wurtz and Erin Keller make things interesting. Erin is an experienced jazz and classical singer while Tim is more straight up. They manage to blend into something quite beautiful. Check out this list of influences quoted from their Lawrence.com page:
Blonde Redhead, Talking Heads, Flaming Lips, Tortoise, The Stone Roses, Radiohead, Saul Williams, Pink Floyd, Air, Bjork, Portishead, Sage Francis, UNKLE, Isotope 217, Wilco

Makes you curious, doesn't it? Check them out this Saturday night at The Hurricane with Anvil Chorus. And buy their record. And go to their Myspace page. And check out a couple of tracks while you're here.
