Hotel Prison 02:57



Side A: Tortuga (45 Version)

Side B: Hotel Prison

Take one listen to Hearing Things and you’ll be led straight through the grooves of a well-worn 45, back to a time of instrumental pop hits like “Walk Don’t Run” by The Ventures, “Tequila” by The Champs, and “Sleep Walk” by Santo & Johnny. Weaving elements of surf rock, lounge pop, soul, and jazz, these songs speak without words, borrowing a language that feels familiar yet unexpected—something we last heard through a speaker in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s.

This limited edition 180 gram 45 features a single edit of "Tortuga" and B-side "Hotel Prison." Bandleader/Saxophonist/Composer Matt Bauder is accompanied by JP Schlegelmilch (organ) and Vinnie Sperrazza (drums). Their seamless collaboration reveals a curiosity rivaled only by its sense of humor. On every track, this trio of true entertainers locks together like greased gears, churning out tight landscapes of sultry and raw sax, fuzzy baritone guitar, a slithering organ, and classic drum beats. They spin through a modern analysis of a sound so familiar, Hearing Things makes you wonder if the future is indeed the past.

We enjoy surfing the Red Sea and stripping at the drive-in but we're equally comfortable relaxing with a good book while the technocrats fistfight in the streets. Prudes, ghosts and tittyshakers; the hustlers and sweettalkers alike, will sway to this brand new beat.
