The charming, intricate, and intelligent compositions of Hospitality signal a sophisticated new pop sound from the newly signed Merge band. But their recent success in signing to such an awesome label hasn't come overnight. In fact, they've been beating the musical pavement for over four years, crafting their sound into what now encompasses their new self-titled LP.
Our Jam of the Day, "Friends of Friends," takes listeners back to the old New York City - not the dirty, crime-riddled, porn-theater version, but rather the romantic version created by Hollywood 2,700 miles away. It feels sincere though, and intimate, by layering wistful drums with horns, synthesizers, and strumming guitars over the hummable lyrics of singer Amber Papini.
