Free Kittens & Bread: Founded as an acoustic solo project in the small town of Princeton, TX inside Chase Spruiell’s unairconditioned shed. After recording Recluse (2013) in the heart of summer, he moved to Austin where the full band took a formal shape including bass, guitar, drums, and the occasional trumpet. Every show produces high energy punk music mingled with the heart of old folk tunes.
Following the tail end of their Recluse tour, the band released their EP Puppet (2014), recorded at Audioconfusion here in The Valley! The record was met with reviews as “an infectious toe tapping head bobber,” and a “punky folk country mashup that’s hard to beat” (Aimless Skylarking).
