I stumbled across The Hosts as I do many new bands these days - via BBC 6Music's King of Indie Steve Lamacq - and in doing so I found one of the most immediate and uplifting albums I'd heard in a long time. The beauty of The Hosts is that they could have made this record at any point since about 1958 and in any of the intervening decades it would have affected people and left a smile on their faces. The genius here is that they have essentially eliminated the risk of it ever sounding dated by making it retro from the get-go. Wide horizons hark back to Buddy Holly and drive in cinemas, doo-wop and the Everly Brothers, yet at the same time it sounds remarkably current and points to where bland modern pop is seriously lacking.

That the band have been produced by fellow Sheffield son Richard Hawley and that they cover Roy Orbison's 'In Dreams' on the record are quite telling... If you can imagine the Big O himself covering 'Tonight the Streets Are Ours' you've an idea of how this joyous album pans out.

If there's any justice the Hosts will join the roster of great Sheffield bands that already boasts Pulp, Arctic Monkeys and the Human League amongst its ranks. And Softly, Softly will become as timeless a classic as its influences have.

Saw The Hosts support the Crookes in Sheffield a few months ago and have been hooked ever since.
This album combines elements from many other Indie styles such as Spector, The Crookes and the Arctic Monkeys. They use a great dreary bandstand-like melody but folk-y vocals.

I was pleasantly surprised that they had released this album, give Your Love To Her, September Song and Wake Up are teh highlights of the album, but the other tacks are pretty good too.

it's not a groundbreaking album, but they're a fantastic up-and-coming band that I'm pretty sure have got a lot more to give.

This is going to be seen as a classic album. It holds together, there doesn't feel any filler tracks, it is what I've been looking and waiting for for quite a while. Hope to see them live if they are even a quarter as good as this it will be great. Thanks The Hosts!

Brilliant album. Love it! Their live performance of the songs from this album is well worth the trip if you get a chance to see them.
