When one is born in the eighties, one honours the nineties: Hudson Bell
Who? Hudson Bell
What? nineties melancholic guitar indie
Sounds Like? Built to spill, Pedro The Lion
Hudson Bell is not a band name, but the name of the singer. I got that wrong for almost 4 years. But besides that, all you should know about Hudson Bell is that he makes wonderful melancholic indie music, with a rock guitar and is in that way reminiscent of nineties favourites Built To Spill.
He has thus far released three albums, with in my humble opinion the second one “Captain of The Old Girls” being the best one. (apart from the absolutely horrible album artwork) It’s more intense, and sounds extremely sincere. Take this song: The Other Side, which i make available to download.. it’s not rock guitar, so it doesn’t really match my definition. that’s why i added a second song “Slow Burn”, from his last album “When the Sun is the Moon”.. His website says he’ll make another record in 2008, but his site hasn’t been updated since beginning 2008. Hudson, where are you?
