Hospitality are a Brooklyn-based indie pop outfit featuring songwriter and vocalist Amber Papini, Nathan Michel (who, at the time of joining the band, had several solo albums out on labels like Tigerbeat 6 and Tomlab), and Brian Betancourt. The band garnered some attention in early 2009, notably from Pitchfork and Stereogum, on the strength of their untitled, self-released EP. Produced by Karl Blau, the disc showcased the band's spare, whimsical sound, one that nodded to acts like Arthur & Yu, Taken by Trees, and Camera Obscura. Hospitality signed to Merge for its self-titled, full-length debut, which arrived in January 2012, and revisited some of the band's earlier material alongside new compositions inspired by youth, New York, and musings on the past and future. ~ Margaret RegesPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
