Home, Like Noplace Is There is the second studio album by American rock band The Hotelier. Released in 2014, the album received widespread critical acclaim and became recognized as one of the best emo revival albums. The band released their second album in 2014 titled Home, Like Noplace Is There, which brought the band to attention in the emo revival scene.
Oh, and that album cover was also an ordeal. Originally, Holden painted the title on the recently foreclosed house of a friend. The cops arrived, but Holden told them that the friend still lived there, so it was fine.
Home ends with a transposed version of the melody from An Introduction to the Album, and it’s a brief respite, not a happy ending or even an ending. It just puts you right back where you started, prepared to fight another day. Home, Like NoPlace Is There is very much an album that works its ass off; it can’t afford to do otherwise, as the Hotelier battle addiction, ignorance, and their own past. But sonically, politically, and ethically, the Hotelier are punk as fuck and perhaps in turn, Home, Like NoPlace There Is can occasionally sound more exciting and unstable than masterful. There are slip-ups- Housebroken is overwrought with metaphor, and there are times when the muddy production can’t quite support their arrangements-but ones that let you know they’re only beginning to realize what they’re capable of.
The Hotelier is an American rock band from Worcester, Massachusetts.

The Hotelier’s album Home, Like NoPlace Is There turns one year old today. The album not only shot them to the top of the game, but it really contributed to the success of the record label, Tiny Engines. Since the record came out, I’ve been following TE closely like a loyal pawn just waiting for them to release another gem like HLNPIT. If The Hotelier hadn’t put out such an amazing album last year I may not have stumbled onto Somos, who also created a record that made it onto my year’s end list. The way that The Hotelier’s album was received affected much more than just the band themselves
