Some coverage:

  • Washington Post feature, diving deep into the inspiration behind Another Other.
  • WBUR, Boston’s NPR News station, feature, describes Naseem grappling with identity. “The songs on Another Other are not so much a call to action as a mandate to look inward.”
  • Boston Herald review of Another Other: “[Kingsley Flood] puts on such epic, intimate and unhinged live shows, people can overlook their albums. The deeply personal and introspective nature of their new LP, ‘Another Other,’ should change that.”
  • Gatehouse Media calls Another Other “a mature work that rocks hard while at the same time tackling tough questions about what it means to be an American — it’s their ‘Darkness on the Edge of Town.'”
