Some Questions #3: Kingsbury!

Οι Kingsbury είναι μια τετραμελής μπάντα από τη Florida. Το Νοέμβρη που μας πέρασε διέθεσαν την πιο πρόσφατη κυκλοφορία τους, το Lie To Me EP, δωρεάν από την ιστοσελίδα τους. Έχουν κυκλοφορήσει δυο ακόμα EPs και ένα άλμπουμ με τίτλο The Great Compromise από την Post Records. Η μουσική τους είναι εσωστρεφής, λιτή και πολύ ατμοσφαιρική, με παραπομπές σε διάφορα αγαπημένα σχήματα όπως οι Low ή οι (μελωδικές στιγμές των) Mogwai, αλλά και οι Σουηδοί Logh τους οποίους μου θύμισαν περισσότερο από κάθε τι άλλο. Περισσότερα από μας γι'αυτούς πολύ σύντομα. Προς το παρόν, δείτε τι είχε να απαντήσει στο ερωτηματολόγιό μας ο τραγουδιστής Bruce Reed!

Could you please tell us...

1. Three albums you’d take along on a desert island?

Radiohead - Kid A, Nick Drake – Pink Moon, Fugazi – End Hits

2. A song you wish you’d written?

Nick Cave – "Into My Arms"

3. Your Sunday morning song?

Typically, I listen to bluegrass and old country music on Sunday morning. We also record on Sundays and eat western style omelets.

4. Your favourite b-side?

This isn’t necessarily my favorite, but I rediscovered it recently. Nine Inch Nails – "Dead Souls".

5. Your favourite Beatles song?

Rubber Soul was one of the first Beatles records I owned, so "Norwegian Wood" and "Michelle" come to mind.

6. A musician/band you think is criminally underrated?

Kingsbury is criminally underrated. We’re brilliant.

7. Your favourite place for writing music?

We write and record everything at Sugarwood, which is a house/studio in Winter Park, FL that our drummer lives at. It has huge ceilings and all the recording equipment in a bedroom. We’ve recorded that way for the last three recordings.

8. What your music-related plans are for the next 12 months?

We’ll be promoting our new EP, Lie To Me, and spreading the good word about our website and all the free recordings we’ve made available at kingsburymusic.net. We’ll be pressing vinyl for Lie To Me as well. A few other plans are in the works, like podcasting live recordings, and releasing some cover songs for free on the website. At some point we’ll go on tour again.

9. What you wish to do once you retire from music?

I’m not sure if we’ll ever retire from music. Music is what we’ll do when we retire from our day jobs.

10. A stylistic choice you’ve made and are now ashamed of?

We’ve made pretty good decisions in the style department. We’re sexy. I have no regrets.

11. Which role you would like to have played if you were an actor?

I wouldn’t want to be an actor.

12. A recurring childhood dream of yours?

Many of my lyrics are based on dreams I’ve had. "Desert Inn" and "The City and The Sea" come to mind.

13. If you are superstitious?

Not really.

14. A sentence containing the words ”some” and ”beans”?

Go to kingsburymusic.net and download our entire catalog for free, sign the mailing list, make a donation if you love our recordings, then go eat some beans.
