We have spoken quite often and quite highly of Kansas City, Mo’s Eddie Moore and the outer Circle and their workman-like brilliance. It would stand to reason that this gripping sound would continue in their next effort, the upcoming album Kings & Queens which they’re dropping next month. Based in part on the original compositions the group rolled out in last year’s live album as well as with more new songs in the mix for this new studio release, this album looks like something to look forward to. Kings & Queens drops next month on the group’s Bandcamp. In the meantime, the first single, “The L.B.C.”, is available for stream and download after the jump.
