You can also digitally pre-order the album on Bandcamp for just $6 and get a download of the first single.
You can hear the first song from the band’s sophomore LP now. “The Scope Of All Of This Rebuilding” is currently premiering on Pitchfork.
Home Like No Place Is There follows up the band’s 2011 debut full-length, It Never Goes Out. You can download that record for free on Bandcamp.
Residing somewhere loosely between pop/punk, indie rock and emo, The Hotel Year exude a certain charm and romanticism that exceeds their relatively young age. The band’s quirky style immediately brings to mind the geek rock heart and soul of Piebald and Harvey Danger while recalling the playfulness of The Promise Ring. Reminiscent in spirit with the confrontational poetry of The Weakerthans, The Hotel Year showcase a genuine maturity that pushes the band beyond genre stereotypes and firmly into their own stratosphere.
