Rose Hotel’s A Pawn Surrender: A BUST Review

by Michael Levine

Jordan Reynolds aka Rose Hotel’s new collection of songs on A Pawn Surrender reflect a mix of psych-rock, pop, and jazz. “Fall in Love Again and Again” leads the way with its fuzzy guitars and layered, ethereal vocals. “Fruit Tree,” “On Your Side,” and “Illusion Anyway” have an Americana flavor that rolls with Psychedelic, twangy guitars reminiscent of Opal/Mazzy Star.Pushing Me” and “Pull the Wool” give dream pop a go. Reynolds’ lyrics cover relationships, feminine rage, temptation, and lustful thinking, all sung with breezy vocals similar to Emmylou Harris and Lida Husik. Rose Hotel is definitely somewhere you’ll love to stay.
