Hospitality – Rockets And Jets


One of the most overlooked records of 2012 was Hospitality’s intelligent and charming self-titled debut. An album that could’ve put the Brooklyn band well on their way – and while greeted with mostly positive reviews – they vanished all too quickly from the radar. Plenty of time to change things around as the band is well on their way to unveil Trouble, their sophomore album, planned for a January 28 release. “Rockets and Jets” could well be the most disarmingly gorgeous piece of music the Brooklynites have ever put their name on. It’s more purposeful than anything in their back catalogue; embracing baleful 80’s synth lines and weeping guitars that covers Amber Papini’s rich vocals in a radiant glow. Almost as if Glass Candy wrote a song together with Cults, supervised by Eric Clapton’s and Roy Orbison. Press play and I think you get the idea.
