THE CITY HALL – REAL NICE & HURTFUL is at Top 200 Radio Now!!!

I met the dudes of The City Hall through a coworker pal at one of my many venue jobs, actually while working a shift at another one of those many jobs, what a world! They’re a fun Seattle indie-pop band with just a tiny bit of bite to ‘em. Several of this album’s tracks initially had swears but these are clean edits as they get to you—even on the discs! Now you’ve got nothing to worry about unless “damn” and “ass” and “hell” are a problem for your station (in which case those are noted below) – but the “real” swears are all already edited out, I promise! Spin with confidence, that’s the Band Mom Promise™. (Not a real trademark, but a real promise.) Slacker pop at its finest, just for you!

The City Hall is a Seattle band formed by Luke Hogfoss (The Palisades) and Casey Dunau (SoccerMom). With the help of an ever-growing list of friends and collaborators, they create music that is the sonic equivalent of throwing gushers, broken camcorders, and birthday tears into an Easy-Bake oven—in other words, sugary pop with a salty aftertaste.

Real Nice & Hurtful was recorded at Hall of Justice studios, the studio owned and operated by Chris Walla of Death Cab for Cutie (where Nirvana recorded Bleach) by Mike Davis, who was recently recognized by Pitchfork for his work with The City Hall’s pals in Special Explosion.
