The Motel Life are an excellent choice for a mix of indie sounds, and can switch from the tuneful and playful tones to a harder edge quickly and seamlessly. Their first album, “We All Left Something Behind”, is much lighter, and their music gets progressively more rock based as they continue to their third album, “Those Bruises”. They are a talented group, with fresh tracks and a Do It Yourself attitude that gives them a good personality.
I recommend visiting their website, http://themotellife.com/, where you can download their album “We All Left Something Behind” free, and you can choose what to pay for their other album “Retreat”.
