HM is proud to premiere InVogue Records’ Hotel Books single for “Car Crash,” which comes from their double EP I’m Almost Happy Here, But I Never Feel at Home. The whole thing will be available July 1, and if you dig it, you can always preorder the record at InVogue’s shop.

Frontman Cam Smith told HM about the origins of the song, and why they brought it back for this release.

‘Car Crash’ was originally release on our B-Sides EP “Amid the Beautiful Devastation’ in 2012. We played the song live for about six months before it got too hard to keep playing it. Emotionally, I was still trying to make sense of the whole situation that surrounded the song, so I put it on the backburner until I felt ready to bring it back to life. Last November, we decided to add a full–band aspect to the song, consequently re-recording it for the new EP. The lyrics have been modified for the new release as well.

Hotel Books have been making a name the past few years doing DIY tours all over the world. They have three releases under their belt within the last four years, eventually finding their home with InVogue Records. The band previously release a single/music video for their first singlem “Cult Leader.”

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
