Kingsley Flood, Live In Concert: Newport Folk 2013

Adam Kissick for NPR

The Boston band Kingsley Flood has spent the last few years polishing, refining and expanding its folk-rock sound, in the process incorporating horns, more strings and ever-brighter production. The sextet sounds more confident than ever on its new album, Battles, which continues to explore some of Kingsley Flood's favorite subject matter: the balance of hopes and dreams, expectations and the everyday.

Hear Kingsley Flood clear a major milestone as the band makes its Newport Folk Festival debut, recorded live on Friday, July 26 in Newport, R.I.

(To be more specific, Thompson had the idea, which took seconds, while Boilen created the series, which took years. Thompson will insist upon equal billing until the day he dies.)
