A couple weeks ago, the Quivers took the late shift duties at the Westport Saloon. The uptempo garage rock vibe kept the party happening at the Saloon until quitting time. It was a good nightcap to a busy evening that started at the Tank Room for the Electric Lungs show.
Back on the first Friday of March, the Quivers released their long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s “Hot Young Mess” with “Sugar Tease”. The show took place at the midtown swap shop Holy Cow Market. The Thunderclaps opened with a great set of surf-tinged tunes from the KC-based duo.
It’s a great collection of tunes written primarily by Terra Skaggs and Todd Grantham. This time around, they added a horn section with the help of Kyle Dahlquist and Jesse Howes. “Sugar Tease” has a the classic Quivers sound with plenty of 60’s soul and early garage rock.
Really, it’s a solid album. It’s been two years since they released their previous effort and maybe the long time between releases was a good thing. The songs had time to mature, get played up at gigs, tweaked and finally laid-down. Check it out here. You can also hit the link in the photo section to hear the entire live set.
Friend of Kansas City music Rich had a birthday get together at the Holy Cow Market last month featuring a lineup diverse lineup of early rock genres. We caught the sets for SUNDOG, Pop Skull Rebels, and the Quivers. Check them out below:
