For their droll, minimal collaboration, Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzales turn their attention towards a famous hotel but end up with a more philosophical examination of these transient spaces. Of course, these seemingly blank slates still hold memories and emotions, and that’s where this collaboration gets interesting

Sometimes, Room 29 can be a bit arch - Gonzalez's piano runs can be a bit florid and Cocker's lyrics can veer toward the purple - but an ode to the decadence of West Hollywood shouldn't be restrained, even when it's austere.

On 17 March 2017 Gonzales released Room 29, a collaboration with Jarvis Cocker. The album is a song-cycle, and tells of happenings in one room at a Hollywood hotel.

A unique collaboration between Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzales, Room 29 asks what the ghosts of Hollywood’s golden age can tell us about how we came to be where we are today. Posted on August 30, 2017May 30, 2018. An album for piano and string quartet (and a few surprises along the way). Inspired by the deepening relationship with Hamburg’s Kaiser Quartett, the album re-imagines Romantic-era chamber music as today’s addictive pop. Posted on August 24, 2017May 30, 2018.

Help yourself to pretzels Help yourself to the minibar I couldn't help myself I read a self-help book Now I've gone too far Too far gone Unrecognisable Frightened of the message light On the phone on the bedside table Room 29 I heard them say "Is the only place to stay" Room 29 Is where I'll face Myself alone.

One of the most interesting collaborations last year. Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzales have created intimate concept album that builds around (imaginary) stories about the guests who have stayed in the Chateau Marmont hotel room 29. It’s not the pop album as the record label might tell you about, so not any Common People have stayed there, but good listen anyway. And beautiful package.

Is it just mine, or has the A side a lot of audible cracklings?

Mine plays fine. Very good pressing. Try cleaning it. Hope it helps.

My vinyl is very quiet with no audible pops or crackles; it's used to be highly unusual for a DG album to have crackling, although I'm not sure where they press their records now that they started up vinyl production again... why not exchange it for a quieter copy?
