Boston’s Kingsley Flood continues to amaze. Their funky blend of blues, garage rock, punk, jug band, and folk just seems to keep evolving. I first heard about them last year, and Krystal Mulbach reviewed their excellent debut, Dust Windows. I was so impressed, the album made Awaiting the Flood’s Top 20-Something of 2010. (And they have the word “flood” in their name, so how could we resist?)
For a limited time, the band is offering a tantalizing taste of their new sound with a free download of their new single, “I Don’t Wanna Go Home.” The song tells the story of a stubborn dreamer whose car slowly falls apart, piece-by-piece, as karma catches up with him. Head on over to the band’s website or simply “LIKE” them on the band’s Facebook page and download the song immediately.
Kingsley Flood is like the best gypsy street band you’ve ever seen and heard. Just check out this video recorded last fall at the Oak Grove subway station just outside Boston:
Kingsley Flood is: frontman Naseem Khuri, Nick Balkin on bass, drummer Will Davies, guitarist George Hall and Jenée Morgan on fiddle and superb backing vocals.
