Motels is the first studio album by new wave band The Motels, recorded in the spring of 1979 and released in the fall. It was produced by John Carter. It peaked at on Billboard's album chart in December. The band began recording on the 14th of the same month and finished within the first week of September.

This is the seventh studio album by the band The Motels, recorded with current touring band whom Martha Davis has been working with for a few years. When Matthew Morgan, a producer-engineer from Portland met up with The Motels, the resulting work became the new album, This. All tracks written by Martha Davis, except where noted. Martha Davis – vocals, guitar. Jon Siebels – bass guitar. Nick Johns – keyboard. Eric Gardner – drums, percussion.

1979's self-titled debut release from the California band the Motels comes across as what a less pretentious Doors might have sounded like had they emerged during the new wave era. The Motels is a fairly cold, almost robotic affair which trades in lyrics that explore the darker side of life in Los Angeles. There are a few tracks that bear repeated listens like the frantic "Kix" and "Celia," a warning to a woman involved with the wrong guy. "Total Control," a big hit for the band in Australia and later covered by Tina Turner, is the album's standout with.

On the album they're exploring the darker sides of living in Los Angeles. The atmospheric and artful compositions of the band can be heard in their rocking and artful songs. The vocalist Martha Davis brings some songs to life with her beautiful voice. Celia" and "Kix" are two excellent crafted songs, but it's getting even better when you'll hear "Closets and Bullets". The album exudes the mood of excitement and danger of late Los Angeles at night. Since the formation of The Motels they've been touring in different line-ups.

The Motels with Two Top 10 hits on Billboard's Charts (Only the Lonely and Suddenly Last Summer) are a household name to many who love the 80's nch back in 1978 Martha has been the centerpiece of this Rock and Roll Legend. Now touring with a new album this band is only getting better with time. Many thanks to Dori Moura and her team at Feather Falls Casino/Brewery for bringing a phenomenal talent to the North Valley. 2 September at 20:47 ·.
