Claire Blaustein

Given the many faces of American music, it's convenient that Kingsley Flood can keep its label as an "Americana" band, even as its music has changed almost entirely from its debut album, Dust Windows, to its new single, "I Don't Wanna Go Home." The group's blues-oriented, fiddle-and-banjo-infused tunes have morphed into a larger, brighter, horn-inflected sound. Electric guitar wails through the middle, claps punctuate the beat and new mic placement does wonders for the lead vocals.
