Hobosexual: Van Candy [Video]

hobosexual

So I was turned on to the band Hobosexual about a month or so ago, but ended up holding off on writing anything as I wanted to make sure I had something audible to include in the post. Well I found a little something called “Penthouse Lover” as well as the video for “Van Candy” my pals at Sound On The Sound premiered. Bonus.

Hobosexual is a dirty band from Seattle. I say dirty because that’s how you feel when you say their name, or at least that’s how I feel. But it’s a good kind of dirty, because then you listen to their music and it’s flat out righteous. I mean, just listen to that wild, bluesy rock riff in “Penthouse Lover” and check out those sludgy-smooth basement harmony vocals.

Then there’s “Van Candy” which, on video, kicks off with a highway sightseeing tour of Seattle. From there it just gets better with little stop-motion alien figurines. And… wait a second! Didn’t I see the SotS folks peek their heads out in there about half way through?

Like what you hear? Hobosexual’s self-titled LP is available now from your friendly neighborhood indie music retailer. If not, you can snag it online, I’m sure.

One thought on “Hobosexual: Van Candy [Video]

  1. I do make a cameo! And while Hobosexual sounds great on video and vinyl, they absolutely slay live. One of the best live rock bands I’ve seen in years. Hope you get to see them in the flesh soon.
