Album Review: The Fling, ‘When The Madhouses Appear’

25 Aug

If you were to have a summer fling, this Long Beach band would be your best bet. With a new album set to release later this month, The Fling is four guys making catchy folk/psychedelic rock that will instantly make you sway back and forth and hypnotize you with their talent.
