KINGSWOOD

Mi­cro­scopic Wars Dew Process

Blunt - - In Review - DAVE DRAY­TON

On “Tremor” they sing of drink­ing whiskey with The Bea­tles, and that’s kind of what you get with Kingswood: a booz­eready rock band with their share of quirks and big­ger am­bi­tion. The in­flu­ence of The Fab Four is shame­less on “Hours”, and break­out sin­gles “Ohio” and “She’s My Baby” re­main as the stand­outs, but there’s plenty to be found else­where. The falsetto of “Sucker Punch” re­calls QOTSA’s dark sex ap­peal, and “Mi­cro Wars” has shades of Kings Of Leon. When ‘ Mer­ica sends some­one to play for the troops, they send Ted Nu­gent. Aus­tralia? We send Kingswood; they play that kind of rock. When Mi­cro­scopic Wars has had a bit of time out in the sun, ex­pect to see more clerks at mu­sic stores wear­ing Kingswood shirts.
