Album Stream: Hospitality - Trouble

Hospitality Trouble

Hospitality have beefed up a little bit for their second album Trouble - take a first listen to the record courtesy NPR this week and hear howAmber Papini and company seem to have foregone their, uh, hospitality in favor of charmingly, smirkingly intimidating you. A couple seconds into opener "Nightingale," her airy, echoed vocals and muscular guitar riff get figured over offset drums; it sounds like she's retelling a Poe story, it only gets more complicated and smartly challenging from there. If you only have time for one track, try "I Miss Your Bones," which features the smartest time signature experimentation you'll hear today. You can nab a physical copy of Trouble on January 28.
