There is old and there is new. Old Portland had Dekum Manor, a dilapidated punk house where the Hotelier delivered a jagged and inspiring set to a mere handful of attendees, none of us remotely aware of the looming condo that will soon inhabit that very lot. Old emo, on the other hand, had a bunch of iconic (yet never really all that popular) bands who paved the way for the current onslaught of celebrated emo revivalists, a category of which the Hotelier have been anointed the saviors. Such myopic nostalgia discounts the bravery and wondrously alive nature of Goodness, which captures the Massachusetts band at their creative zenith with little regard for their—or any other—past musical work. Keep looking back and you'll miss the future. EZRA A. CARAEFF
