Stream The Hotelier’s brilliant new record, ‘Goodness’

the hotelier

The Hotelier captivated the emo, pop-punk, and indie rock worlds in 2014 with their tidal wave of a sophomore record, Home Like Noplace Is There, and they’ve finally returned with the long-awaited follow-up. Listen to Goodness in full via Stereogum and make sure you read their full interview which is massive, worth your time, and features photos from UTG alum Nina Corcoran.

It’s hard to imagine The Hotelier topping the acclaim and deeply personal connection so many hold with Home, Like Noplace Is There. Thus, Goodness doesn’t necessarily try to top it. It’s a love record, wide-open and airy, as optimistic as Home is tragic. It’s a different beast entirely, and for the most part, it succeeds. We’ll have a full review of the record up next week.

Listen to Goodness at Stereogum, and watch the music video for “Piano Player” below.
