One of the songs they performed, “Grapevine Valentine,” is included on the new Key Studio Sessions, Volume 6, along with 16 other performances from local bands including songs by Arctic Splash, Reef The Lost Cauze, Cold Fronts and others. You can download the entire collection here. Below, download “Grapevine Valentine” by Kingsfoil.

Check out highlights from fall of 2012 with The Key Studio Sessions Vol. 6, including some hard-hitting hip-hop from Ethel Cee and Reef the Lost Cauze, expressive Americana from The Districts, bright pop-rock from Kingsfoil, dense shoegaze from Nothing and more.
