Boston’s Kingsley Flood are back with their follow up to the excellent Dust Windows. Here’s an excerpt from their PR release to get you excited.
Fresh off a win for Americana Artist of the Year at the 2012 Boston Music Awards, Kingsley Flood announces the release of their second full-length album, Battles, on Feb. 5, 2013. Despite its subject matter, what makes the album essential listening is the music. Battles is an album that demands to be heard from start to finish. The 12 tracks feature the band’s most honed, complex, and meaningful work to date. Produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim, David Wax Museum) at Great North Sound Society, an 18th century farmhouse in southern Maine, Battles amplifies the band’s pension for dynamics: rock songs that can fill music halls, quiet songs that sound two feet away. The resulting sound blends Dylan-esque storytelling, Kinks-inspired hooks, and the urgency of the Clash.
