Hospitality - Friends of Friends - Hospitality (2012)
Hospitality lightening the tone of my afternoon. I love the playful nature of their songs…even when the subject matter, of said songs, is not so playful.
A lot of that playfulness comes through in Amber Papini’s vocals — there’s energy and animation in every word that she sings.
Papini’s vocals, coupled with rich but lighthearted instrumentation and idiosyncratic songwriting adds a buoyancy and spirit to this album. It oozes life and pep even when tackling not so lively themes.
Love it from top to bottom.
“…When I call
you don’t pick up anymore
But I’ve got
Friends that are new friends
And friends that are old friends
And friends looking out…”
