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.
