New Video: The Hosts – September Song (Single Review)

Rating:

Following on from a US tour with Cold War Kids and The Walkmen, plus a string of UK arena dates supporting none other than Paul Weller, bright young things The Hosts have just release their second single ‘September Song’ and it’s evident that they’re held in rather high esteem by those who control the purse strings, for the accompanying video has a rather hefty budget. Depicting some crazed backwoods antics that resemble a cross between Gummo and Winter’s Bone, including a somewhat deranged tap dancer, the Richard Hawley produced track ambles along nicely while never really going anywhere. Still, having Hawley on board has given the sound a large, clear aspect, and his studio advice will have undoubtedly come in handy.
