For the first time in eight years, Richard Gintowt doesn't work for lawrence.com. His local music podcasts will be particularly missed — but the silver lining is that we can now pimp his bands for the first time, which have always been pimp-worthy, from Ghosty to OK Jones to this, his latest project, Hidden Pictures. The band began to take shape a couple years ago when Gintowt and Michelle Sanders started performing as a duo. They've since assembled a six-piece band, which plays sunny indie-pop with lots of harmonies and hook-laden melodies. Miss America is a new band from Kansas City featuring songwriters Erik Voeks and Cody Wyoming—their style is sorta power-pop meets alt-country. The New Lost Souls are a trio from KC that plays pysch-rock covers from the '60s and '70s.
