Checking back in with Hospitality

I forgot how much I love Hospitality’s eponymous album from 2012, probably because it’s a super solid, vaguely quirky indie rock release, and I’ve listened to way too many of those.

Luckily, because of arbitrary self-imposed writing restraints, I was tasked with endorsing bands that started with the letter H, and I remembered really digging it at the time.

The whole album definitely stands up, but I found them most interesting when they dialed the energy up a bit. “Friends of Friends”, the lead single, got a bit more buzz and did some interesting with horns, but I definitely prefer “The Right Profession”.

For me, this is decidedly the standout track from the album, it’s delightfully bouncy and detours into a sort of angular art-rock terrain, which is way more prevalent on other songs on this album. It’s also got by far, Hospitality‘s strongest hook, so of course I’ve listened to it about a dozen times this week.

Somehow, I think it may have been almost three entire posts since I posted  a short, punchy female fronted, jangly guitar pop.
