The Hotelier - Home, Like Noplace Is There Cover

"The Hotelier’s second album paints the Worcester, Massachusetts quartet as posterboys of awkward music with feelings."

Remember how about six months ago we ran a Buyer’s Guide on the totally made-up genre of North American Feelingscore? Yeah, that was a bit silly, but if The Hotelier had dropped this a year previous, it would have made the dictionary definition. With all the misery of The Menzingers, the snottiness of Captain, We’re Sinking and the warmth of Better Off, The Hotelier’s second album paints the Worcester, Massachusetts quartet as posterboys of awkward music with feelings, and from start to finish there’s almost nothing to fault here. Put it this way: if you can resist screaming your lungs out to ‘Your Deep Rest’ with your hands aloft, you’re almost definitely dead inside.
