Album of the Week – 26/07/19 – Violent Femmes – Hotel Last Resort

Album of the Week – 26/07/19

Another week without anything screaming for your attention. There are some new interesting works, with Lloyd Cole (Guesswork), Dude York (Falling) and Maneka (Devin) which is a solo project by Devin McKnight of Speedy Ortiz.

It could have been Chance the Rapper‘s new album, but guess what? It didn’t show up! Longitude fans will not be surprised.

After much deliberation, we went for…

Violent Femmes – Hotel Last Resort

Possibly skip over the first track which is novelty at best! It might be a little patchy, but there’s some gems contained within.

“The groundbreaking band’s tenth studio album, HOTEL LAST RESORTresides among Violent Femmes’ finest work, simultaneously refining / redefining their one-of-a-kind take on American music, mingling front porch folk, post-punk, spiritual jazz, country blues, avant-garde improvisation, and golden age rock ‘n’ roll. Founded and fronted by Gano and Ritchie, the group remains as warm, wise and weird as ever before, with new favorites such as Another Chorusand Everlasting Youcontinuing to mine the vast range of ideas, melodic complexity, and organic sonic craftsmanship that has characterized the band’s body of work since their landmark 1983 debut.”
