This underrated 6-song EP is the follow-up to Hotel Lights' surprisingly pop-sensible self titled debut. Why an EP, you ask? My best bet is their front-man Darren Jessee wanted to experiment with a slightly different sound. Goodnight Goodmorning has probably the most "produced" feel of any Hotel Lights releases to date. If Jessee wrote a collection of songs inspired by A.M. Slow Golden Hit (a standout track from his first album), this is what the result would sound like.

Even though almost every song on the disc features the same laid-back hooks those already familiar with the band love, this time around they find themselves surrounded by a more prevalent electronic backdrop. "Talking To Lisa" features a synth-heavy hook that reappears throughout it, and a song like "Happy & Glad" would almost certainly get lost within its ethereal soundscapes in less-experienced hands, but Jessee's pop-sensibility manages to keep to ground it into a fine indie pop song. The chorus of "String of Racehorses" soars alongside Jessee harmonized vocals, and "Another Year," perhaps the most textbook Hotel Lights-sounding tune from this EP, is among the band's best.

Not to be overlooked due to its length (or lack thereof), Goodnight Goodmorning is a fine collection of songs from Darren Jessee and co. It's an absolute must-own for fans of the band, and is an acceptable place to start for newbies as well, though I would nominate their self-titled debut for that honor.
