Best of NYC #23: Motel Motel

Best of NYC #23: Motel Motel

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record store personnel and DJs)

From a harder attitude of “Coffee” to emphasizing softer strings of “Harlem,” Motel Motel skillfully designs variety in composition of each of its single-word titled songs. Whether changing tempo or delivering inspired slant rhyme lyrics, Motel Motel keeps listeners interested and attracted to its eccentric, unpredictable flow and commendable attention to detail. While its character may appeal to fans of Cold War Kids, Motel Motel introduces a unique style of indie rock with country influences. - Gina Alioto - Read a Q&A with the band here.
