Cibo Matto

Hotel Valentine, Cibo Matto's third studio album, dropped on Valentine's Day, the avant-garde synth-pop duo's first release in 15 years. Here, a funk backbeat and lithe, reverb-heavy horn lines featuring the likes of multi-reedist Doug Wieselman and Nels Cline (of Wilco) deflect diaphanous vocals and existential murmurings off the dense concept album's echo chamber of seamlessly multi-layered lounge music designed for the starship-themed boutique hotel with the transient lobby bar of your unconscious desires. It's a Zen meditation on the tropes of housekeeping attendants, deserted hotel pools, and check-in protocol that examines the liminality of experience and the modalities of checking out without the frustration.
