Futurebirds have earned themselves an AllMusic review for their album Hotel Parties. Comparing the band to Big Star, REM, and My Morning Jacket, the review praises the album’s “easygoing yet complex style” and describes the band’s sound as “sauntering pop-country-psych” with lyrics “exploring themes of dualism and contradiction.” This is Futurebirds’ third album to date, and AllMusic says it’s the one that listeners should start with.
