2013 | Kyle’s Top Records 25 – 21

What’s an end of December without a giant list of albums I was totally head over heels in love with? Here are my picks for records you absolutely should be picking up. 25. Lindi Ortega – Tin Star [youtube][/youtube] [N]ashville by way of Toronto country crooner made a fantastic record about the road, being a musician, and not getting fame, no billboard hits, and no sold out nights, but making her way as a musician, and trying to become a star.

Tonight | Kingsley Flood w/ Toy Soldiers, Grace & Tony – Paradise Rock Club

[B]oston’s very own Kingsley Flood have been on the road this summer promoting their fantastic album, Battles, and destroying stages across the country with a live show that raises the performance bar with each city stop. The gang’s last show in their hometown was back in May, and we have missed them. The country is catching on folks and if you have yet to experience a Kingsley Flood show you simply must remedy that mistake this evening. [P]hiladelphia band Toy Soldiers are looking to bring the stage smack-down challenge to the headliners this evening as the five-piece from the city…


Friday at Newport Folk Festival in Photos

[F]riday at the Folk Fest may have been a rainy day affair, but as far as opening the Festival, we had a great opportunity to get our groove on, checking out sets from Amanda “F-ing” Palmer, Phosphorescent, Blake Mills backed up by Dawes, The Milk Carton Kids, folk upstarts Kingsley Flood, Houndmouth, John McCaulley of Deer Tick and closed out the day as the sun peeked through the clouds with the Old Crow Medicine Show. Take a look at our first day in photos from our photographer, Jamie Reiley,  and let us know which show you most enjoyed.


Video | Kingsley Flood – Sun Gonna Lemme Shine

[youtube][/youtube] [C]hchchcheck out the new video for “Sun’s Gonna Lemme Shine,” from Kingsley Flood’s standout record, Battles. The video follows the story of a young boy who wears a dress to school and feels like an outcast, only to be taken by an old man with an eyepatch (played by lead guitarist George Hall) to a Kingsley Flood where he can let his freak flag fly. The video was based on an article lead singer Naseem Khuri read, about the taboo yet common subject. Enjoy the video, the awesome tune, and if you haven’t already buy the damn record.


Review | Kingsley Flood – Battles

Photo by Dave Green Photography [W]hen a band like Boston’s Kingsley Flood only has a few years under their belt, and still collects accolades like they have been creating music together for a Springsteen amount of years, you have yourself something pretty special. The latest album, Battles, is just their second full-length release, but you could never tell that from the sound coming from your speakers. The members of Kingsley Flood play the music of a band wise beyond its years. In the spring of 2010 Kingsley Flood released their debut album, Dust Windows, receiving praise across the music blog…

New Music | Kingsley Flood – Down

Kingsley Flood – Down

The first post of 2013 goes to Kingsley Flood, one of my favorite Boston acts going these days. It’s been a long time coming, and we’re just a month or so away from the release of the new record Battles, which will be available February 5th. Their first single from upcoming album was the download of the day last week from the good folks over at Rolling Stone.

The single in question, “Down,” turns up the heat on this cold day in Boston, with pounding drums, a fuuuuuuzzzzzzy keyboard riff, and Naseem Khuri’s in your face vocals. It’s a total rocker from beginning to end, and is damn tasty for sure. From the sounds of it, the Flood is bringing the goods on this highly anticipated record.


Kingsley Flood – Colder Still EP

Kingsley Flood – Black Boots Kingsley Flood – I Don’t Wanna Go Home Our friends Kingsley Flood released their Colder Still EP yesterday, one that has been on regular replay here in my library and for good reason.  Colder Still is a 6 song EP that ramps up the energy and plays like a Kingsley Flood live show.  A bit raucous, full of energy and exemplifies the rootsy, gypsy, americana these guys play, with an added a bit of testosterone. If you’ve been fortunate to have heard them play live, you’ve probably heard most of these songs, but the studio…

New Music | Kingsley Flood – Black Boots

Kingsley Flood – Black Boots Strap on your boots, our friends here in Boston, Kingsley Flood have released another track off their upcoming EP Colder Still.  This song has been a staple of their live shows and for great reason.  The pounding drums, the trash can clangs, string arrangements all build a sound of rollicking, boot stomping party in an old western saloon.
