«Hotel is a Brazilian musical project based on a collective series of improvisation works, founded by Douglas Dickel (input_output, Blanched), and inspired by Joshua Homme’s famous 'Desert Sessions'. Hotel began in 2006 at the Live Studio, in Porto Alegre, when Dickel brought together musicians from the local indie & post-rock scene. Hotel is about the introducing of new artists who never played together before, to each other, for a few hours. The gathered musicians try some spontaneous ideas or rhythms, or pick up stuff.
Songs are written & recorded “on the spot”, simultaneously, and in matters of four hours or so.

“Térreo” - the first release - means a Hotel’s 'ground floor', and joined, in 2006, Yury Hermuche (FireFriend, Frank Poole) on guitar, Renan Stiegemeier (Andina, Farveste) on bass, Marcelo Koch (Blanched) on drums, and Dickel on guitar, noisy toys and mixing. It is still available for free through this link. It was originally released by Peligro Discos in 2007.

“Segundo Andar” means a Hotel’s 'second floor', and joined, in 2007, Leonardo Brawl (Fruet & Os Cozinheiros, Subtropicais) on bass, Rodrigo Souto (Andina) on drums, and Mateus D’Almeida (Andina, Farveste) and Dickel on guitars and synthetizers.

'Segundo Andar' is clearly influenced by many nineties and 00's post-rock bands at his core, like GYBE! among others less famous, but one can also detect many traces of Sonic Youth's best guitar melodies from the eighties and the Geffen's best years, Yo La Tengo's numerous digressive instrumentals and even Glenn Branca's intempestive compositions and improvisations. All wrapped up with a really nice jazzy vibe.

This is really good stuff to nod your head too. If you have a truly indie heart, that is.»
- Pedro Leitão, with some biographical info taken from 'Hotel's blogspot webpage.
