Violent Femmes Hotel Last Resort Limited Vinyl LP


The groundbreaking band's tenth studio album, HOTEL LAST RESORT resides 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 Chorus and Everlasting You continuing 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.Ever eager to push their musical boundaries, Violent Femmes have expanded their ranks over the past decade-and-a-half, bringing percussionist John Sparrow and multi-instrumentalist Blaise Garza into the fold. Both longtime members of The Horns of Dilemma - the ever-evolving cabal of multi-instrumentalist backing musicians that have toured with the band over the past fifteen years. Sparrow's novel use of a Weber Grill as a rhythm instrument along with the extreme tones of Garza's central instrument, the massive contrabass saxophone, bring a stunning depth to the Femmes' famous sound, imbuing songs like Paris To Sleep and Adam Was A Man with a striking richness and imaginative edge.
