Hospitality

Hospitality's terrific second album, Trouble, is out today via Merge. It finds the Brooklyn band loosening up and confident taking their sound into new areas -- most notably prominent use of keyboards. (Order it here.) You can hear three songs from Trouble as part of the eighth installment of our BV Studio Sessions recorded at Butler Recording in Bushwick. Big thanks to Jessica Amaya, Albert Amaya for making this look (and sound) great. Much appreciation to Chris La Putt as always. Watch:

Good thing they didn't do a Prince cover.

I was referencing that Controversy Inc had one song from BV's session with Savoir Adore removed from youtube because it was a Prince cover.

David Christian's been in the live line-up for a while. He was exclusively the drummer for the shows they played supporting the debut album, but now they're moving him around.

I recently saw them...wasn't sure how they would be live, and this was basically how they were on stage - it was a really good show (especially in a smaller GA venue on a weekday). The band was very tight, the sound was amazing after the supervisor came to the booth and fixed things following the first song or two (and much louder than i expected), and of course Amber was even more lovely in person.
