Tullycraft's new album, The Railway Prince Hotel, is more of the same, which makes us very happy. Featuring instant classics such as "Has Your Boyfriend Lost His Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight?", "We Couldn't Dance to Billy Joel", and "We Lost Our Friends to Heavy Metal", and lyrical refrains such as "I never thought I could hate you / I guess I was wrong" (from "The Cat's Miaow In A Spacesuit"), it is clear that the well of inspiration continues to run deep as Sean and his current bandmates, Jenny Mears, Chris Munford, and Corianton Hale age and acquire responsibilities. The band manages to be poignant, knowing, smug, funny and self-deprecatory, often in the same song, while being unfailingly entertaining. This album is a musical treasure.
The Railway Prince Hotel is out now in digital, CD and vinyl formats via HHBTM Records.
