Kite Flying Society 7-7-2006 @ AmplifySD

By now you've probably heard that the new Kite Flying Society album is finally available for pre-sale. As I've said here before, I'm rather excited for this release. To support it, Kite Flying Society will be going on their first extended tour up and down the west coast. I haven't heard a note of live KFS yet (San Diego tapers, are you out there?) but was pleased to be able to hear Dustin and Kelly from the band do a live interview and a play a couple of songs for Sign on San Diego's AmplifySD broadcast last week.

I ripped this from the July 12 broadcast, but I'm told the interview and performance actually took place on July 7. Along with the first interview with the band members that I've heard, you can also check out live acoustic versions of "Groundflower" and "Tiger Stripes" and sample a couple songs from the album. It's my first time hearing "Tiger Stripes" in any form and it has me even more excited about Where is the Glow?. Here is the full set either track-by-track or packaged in a .zip file:
