Kingston Springs is a city that covers roughly 10 square miles in Cheatham County, Tennessee, and sits about 25 miles west of Music City. It’s also the name of a local indie-rock outfit that is hell-bent on taking this particular week of the year by storm in a wave of three noteworthy events.
Firstly, their self-titled, self-released debut full-length drops today, and it can be streamed below or purchased for $10 via Bandcamp. The first single, “Lowest of Animals” (above), is a relatively lo-fi homage to classic AM rock riffage treated with a Southern-style stoner stomp and sweetly tempered with familiar indie-pop melodies.
Second, the band will be performing live, right of the dial, on Lightning 100’s “615” program at 7 p.m. tonight. And, thus rounding out our third bullet point, there will be a live, in-the-flesh appearance, as the Springs will open for Americana big'uns Trampled by Turtles at the wildly successful and 100 percent free Live on the Green series this Thursday.
