Hospitality Interview at Rickshaw Stop

Brooklyn trio Hospitality recently released their Sophomore LP, Trouble, on Merge. They have been supporting the album with a nation-wide tour and are about to go overseas starting in May. I was lucky enough to catch up with Amber Papini (guitar, vocals) and Brian Betancourt (bass) before their show at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco last February. In our interview, we cover influences for their new darker sound, what they’ve been listening to lately, and upcoming releases for the band. Friends of the band, Airwaves, opened as well as Matt Kivel, who you can hear sound-checking in the background.
