HOTELS, THE: Leslie: Cassette

There’s a strong feel of late nineties guitar alt-rock on this release from these Atlanta, GA locals, which normally might make me cringe. But, fortunately, there are two factors at play here that instead make this tape really good—the positively obnoxious guitar tone that buzzes along on every song and the totally non-nineties vocal styling. Toss those things together with some good hooks, songwriting, and some relish and you have yourselves a real wiener.
