Welcome back! This week we’re going to check out Goodness, the latest release from The Hotelier. This album is mostly a straight-forward guitar, bass, and drums rocker with a little twist. Amidst the jangling guitars and thumping bass numbers, the band threw in some spoken word. You won’t find rich musical textures or lush harmonies, but you will find a musical heart worn on each band member’s sleeve that comes through every song. The vocals are often raw – sometimes from the sing/screaming, but more often from a deeper meaning that’s struggling to burst forth from the words that escape their lips. Check out the official album trailer that contains the track Goodness Pt. 1. It’s a terrific track, but the video doesn’t end the way you might hope, so you’ve been warned.
