Since Riot House’s offices are located just next to Kütu Folk Records, we couldn’t avoid having Hospital Ships in the Sexroom while they were in town!
They just released their second album untitled “Lonely Twins” and you should definitely check them out if not already done. Aerial voice, soft chords, romantic lyrics, perfect songwriting : meet your new favorite band!
Jordan Geiger, songwriter of Minus Story, trumpet player for Shearwater and resident of Lawrence, Kansas, brings you his bedroom-pop solo band. Influenced by the sounds of The Flaming Lips song from which the name Hospital Ships is drawn, Geiger’s exudes a seasoning of classic influences including John Lennon, The Zombies, and ELO to produce a bedroom pop symphony. Exploring relationships both failed and ongoing with friends, lovers, and pets, J.G. delicately teases the listener with his boyish tenor of a voice. In the background, muted horns swell, pianos twinkle, and percussion marches in step.
