Artist Spotlight: The Burning Hotels

The Burning Hotels is an indie rock quartet with a knack for coupling post-punk riffs and melodic choruses.

Hailing out of Fort Worth, the band has been steadily building a name for themselves ever since their first EP in 2007. The Fort Worth Weekly described the group as, "One of the town's coolest bands, period."

The Burning Hotels' debut album, Novels, is set for release on April 27th, 2010.

On Novels, the band embraces an aesthetic for jagged guitar rhythms and heady, driving beats. Tracks like "Boy or a Girl" and lead single, "Austin's Birthday" sound ready for teen rebellions and college parties, while the lush, introspective reverb of "The River" echoes to a coming of age.

Novels shows a band with a lot of promise. Sometimes we're left searching for answers and occasionally we find them. If that sounds a lot like life to you, they might be on to something.

Novels may not be revelatory, but it is certainly a lot of fun to take for a spin.

Nice sound. Love it. Why do we not hear more about bands like this outside of in-the-know blogs? And how do you find this stuff?
