Hostage Calm's self-titled sophomore album delivers an expansive and deranged pop-music palette, imprinting The Smiths' reluctant resolve and early-Beatles pop sensibilities on a high-energy punk landscape. The shimmering jangle of electric and acoustic guitar layers meet adventurous bass lines, intricately woven together and backed by a colorful percussion section. Soaring choruses and smooth vocal harmonies surge to the forefront, driving political and personal anthems with infectious melody and poetic elegance. Now available on vinyl.
