Never Get Cold is Hospital Job's third album in as
many years. Some bands are overflowing with things to say and music to play.
Hospital Job is one of these bands. Each album reads like a day-in-the-life
journal entry by an everyday guy doing everyday things, but set to paper in
way that showcases the trivial day-to-day in such a way that expands and
explodes the importance of these moments that would otherwise pass by
without much notice. Every big thing in life is made up of smaller parts and
pieces. Being able to recognize the importance in the small things is a
gift. Transforming the mundane into the exceptional is a skill. Hospital Job
excels at doing both. Musically speaking, Never Get Cold takes those
smaller pieces - the melodies, harmonies, hooks, and beats - and shares them
in an assembly that is infinitely greater than the sum of its parts. As a
whole, it's a beautiful thing. Though a little slower overall than past
efforts, Never Get Cold is a more concentrated and driving album, and
never short of those crucial hooks.
