Hospitality - Trouble

Need the perfect soundtrack to this rather gloomy dismal weather we've been having? Trouble, second album from Brooklyn band Hospitality, should do the trick. Its dreamy, soft-focus tunes sung in Amber Papini's lovely tones will fill your home with the hazy, yellow streetlamp glow of a New York borough long after all the bars and clubs have emptied.

The sound is a neat mix of 90s indie and 70s pop and post-punk. The electro beats in the background of 'Inauguration' feel like the hum of a subway, while 'Rockets And Jets' is infused in bright synths and the thump of bass. In stark contrast, the pretty 'Call Me After' is just Papini and an acoustic guitar framing her floaty vocals. Trouble stands up rather well, the clever tunes are fun and vivacious, with plenty of variation to engage the listener. Let the music soothe your troubles.
