Default Kingsley Flood

I read this article and found them interesting enough to check out...

Quote:
I tend to suspect a solid percentage of what appear to be roots-movement bands are, in fact, punk bands who realized they get taken more seriously when they play acoustic guitars and pretend they've always been huge Johnny Cash fans.

"I never grew up wearing cowboy hats, and I'm not going to wear one now," says Kingsley Flood founder and songsmith Naseem Khuri via telephone from Washington, DC. "We're all from the Northeast. We don't try to be something we're not. One thing we say is, we're trying to challenge traditional notions of Americana music. Hopefully, we're not making music that's been made a million times"...

"I still don't listen to much roots rock," says bassist Nick Balkin, when I join him with three other area Kingsleys at Lord Hobo in Cambridge. "When Naseem and I started playing, his songs were just really good folk songs. Then it turned into something you could label Americana, because we kept saying things like, 'Oh, this would be cool with a fiddle,' or 'This part would be cool with a mandolin.' "
Some of the initial tracks I found didn't interest me too much. Seemed like rock music with someone else thrown in behind it with poor production so it would phase out behind a wall of feedback. But today I found this little gem...



I don't know if this is there song or a cover, but either way I really liked this one. I'm going to see what iTunes has, which I assume will have more production value.
