Remember that time back in August when NPR blew its aural load all over our boys -- and gal -- in Boston's mostest favoritest don't-call-it-Americana-it's-not-2010-anymore-brah band of fiddle-playing heathens, KINGLEY FLOOD? Well ZOMGZ it's happening again. Today NPR "premiered" new single "I Don't Wanna Go Home" -- we're putting premiered in quotes since Dave Duncan played it first, last night on WFNX's Boston Accents -- as its official Song Of The Day, marking the jam's official release date. Well played, Kingsleys.
"I Don't Wanna Go Home," NPR says, "has a vintage radio feel and the momentum of a great live show, raising the listener's heart rate to match the pounding drums." Word. It's available for download for a limited time over at kingsleyflood.com, and is certain to hold us over until a proper full-length follow-up to last year's Dust Windows arrives in early 2012.
Also, while we're not in the game of predicting things, but let's just say this new Kingsleys joint has MP3 of the Week potential written all over it. Maybe we'll show it our love once their next Boston gig, June 18 at Great Scott alongside McAlister Drive and Son of The Sun, draws near. We'd hate to steal NPR's thunder, but they were ours first.
