Lucius
Lucius has been described by the New York Times as "The next Feist" having "luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies" and by Seventeen Magazine as "alluring and magnetic" ...Their yet-to-be-released sophomore record "WILDEWOMAN" produced by Tony Berg (Phantom Planet, Aimee Mann, Beck) and Dan Molad (Elizabeth & The Catapult, Luke Temple/Here We Go Magic) is certainly a leap in a new, exciting direction.
Kingsley Flood
Kingsley Flood
Boston and Washington, DC based six-piece Kingsley Flood released their first full-lenth Dust Windows in 2010, generating both critical acclaim and a passionate fan base. In 2011, the band issued the six-song EP Colder Still, with tracks that were touted by NPR, Esquire, and Paste.The band, described recently by the Boston Herald as a "Rolling Thunder Revue with a punk rock sneer," has supported Grace Potter and Nocturnals, Angus and Julia Stone, Langhorne Slim, and Brett Dennen, among others, and is a two-time winner at both the Boston Music Awards and the Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll.

In 2013, Kingsley Flood has no plans to sit still. Battles, their latest full-length (released Feb. 5), is the band's most honed, complex, and meaningful project to date. Recorded with producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim, David Wax Museum) at Great North Sound Society in rural Maine, Battles amplifies the band's pension for dynamics — rock songs that can fill music halls, quiet songs that sound two feet away.

The resulting sound blends Dylan-esque storytelling, Kinks-inspired melodies, and the urgency of the Clash. Anchored by Rolling Stone premiere "Down" and MTV Buzzworthy premiere "Pick Your Battles," Battles asks a fundamental question at the heart of our current national mood – how can those who play by the rules, yet fall behind, get back on their feet? Inspired by everything from dictators clinging to power to an unemployed worker still packing his lunch every day, Battles winds a deliberate path from self doubt (opener "Don't Change My Mind") to quiet determination (closer "This Will Not Be Easy").
