Hospitality, Teen, The Human Eyes

When: Sat., Oct. 27, 9 p.m. 2012

The Brooklyn quartet Hospitality shares a strummy, cardigan-redolent air with Belle & Sebastian, along with a similar set of lowercase concerns: the peculiarities of intimacy, uninspiring jobs and post-academic stasis. "Eighth Avenue," the enchanting opener from the band's 2012 self-titled debut for Merge Records, begins with steady gut-string strumming and vocalist Amber Papini's guileless-sounding vocals. New colors enter, such as an acquiescent orchestral synth line, rich harmonies, guitar countermelodies; we end up in an unforeseen, and rather glorious, place. Originally a trio but now fleshed out with a full-time drummer, this seasoned live act brims with smarts and sophistication, without skimping on the fun. With Teen.—David Klein
