Another week, another awesome music video coming out of Boston. But this one from KINGSLEY "Fiddle Me This" FLOOD has bears in it -- criminally-minded, very feisty, non-hibernating bears! -- and they're all running amok in Garment District, Central Square, and a host of other locales around Cambridge towne.
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.

It’s been a stellar run for Kingsley Flood since taking home “Best Local Roots” acts in our Best Music Poll and getting the Cellars by Starlight treatment earlier this year. Boston’s finest Americana quintet got doused with affection by NPR in August, leading to a remarkable boost in online record sales, shot a new video for “Quiet Quiet Ground” and recently got the attention of Counting Crows front man Adam Duritz, who caught their CMJ show at Arlene’s Grocery in New York last week.
UPDATE: As of 2:08pm Thursday, Kingsley Flood is back on top! Folks, this is going to be a dogfight!
Damn that Jody Gnant!
