Adeline Hotel: Solid Love (album review by Christa V.)

Adeline Hotel has a sound unlike any other band I have heard. The best I can do to characterize it is that it is most similar to folk music, but with waves of  sound in the background of the vocals. It creates a really cool ambiance for the music, and it is very relaxing. You can hear plenty more influences within  specific songs, for example how “Strange Sometimes” has elements of Eastern music and how “Trace” is definitely country. But there is also such a range of instruments used that it can be hard to pin down. “Strange Sometimes” also features a lovely saxophone solo, and “Slow Love” includes a violin solo towards the end. “Trace” takes a leap from typical country and includes a killer electric guitar solo. Somehow, all of these diverse sounds come together and have a unifying quality on this album that make it clear that this music is uniquely Adeline Hotel’s.  Favorite tracks: 1, 2, 4
