Album Notes
Amateur Hour is a four-piece rock band from the DC area who play sweet, gritty guitar-pop. Influenced by bands like Big Star and the Cars, their sound is exuberant yet experienced, like Keith Richards as a televangelist. The band is fronted by singer/drummer Dan Perriello and features guitarists Mike Conner and Tom Quispe as well as bassist Jeremy Koller. Amateur Hour’s new record is called This Year’s Epiphany.

This Year’s Epiphany marries Amateur Hour’s tightly crafted pop songs to the living, breathing, natural sound of a band making music in a room together. Inspired by classic records like Exile On Main St., Amateur Hour traveled to a sweltering Brooklyn studio last July in search of one intangible element: vibe. Tracking live to analog tape, the band worked quickly to record 10 complete songs in just over 3 days, overdubbing only vocals and piano. Eschewing the convenience of digital recording in favor of the warmth and texture of tape meant capturing honest performances without editing or cut-and-paste; vocals with no auto-tune. Self-imposed time constraints made spontaneity and urgency a tangible necessity.
