Editors’ Notes

The Brooklyn-based trio Hospitality keep the rough edges of their self-titled debut with a second album, 2014’s Trouble; it also keeps a youthful wonder toward melodies and the interworkings of a trio. Even a smooth, late-'70s new wave/pop number like “I Miss Your Bones” features all the elements right in front of your ears. The guitar solo sticks out for its naked aggression, but the bass lines practically click with the steady drums (like in the days of The Jam) and singer Amber Papini double-tracks her voice for a disorienting effect. The synth turns on for the weird and trippy minimalism of the Vampire Weekend–suggestible “Inauguration,” while the band goes for a full-blown plush stereo sound on “Rockets and Jets,” where guitars and keyboards vamp with sophistication. “It’s Not Serious” recalls the simple metrics of Brill Building pop, with the acoustic “Sunship” turning that pop toward the psychedelic ends of Mellotron and harmony. The all-acoustic and bare “Call Me After” finishes the proper album. The bonus track “Bet” extends the acoustic mood but with additional instrumental cover.

The rest of the album isn't bad but I do like the track-I miss your bones-Good tune!
