Peter Silberman pulled a Brian Wilson on us, writing Hospice during a period of "social isolation" and then recording it in his bedroom with the help of two musicians: Michael Lerner (drums) and Darby Cicci (versatile). They ended up becoming permanent members of the group and went on to self-release Hospice. Propelled by NPR, the first pressing was sold out and the group was picked up by indie label Frenchkiss.

Brilliant and sad lyrics run throughout on top of mellow, catchy and rolling melodies. It's really a fantastic album.

Give one of the singles, Bear, a listen:
