Watch: Hospitality - "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" (Steely Dan cover)

Hospitality band from Brooklyn

The somewhat overlooked Hospitality recently made their way through the A.V. Club/The Onion offices to participate in the website's ongoing A.V. Undercover series. The Brooklyn quartet decided to take on the Steely Dan staple "Rikki Don't Lose That Number", from the rock duo's third full-length, 1974's Pretzel Logic.

When asked why they picked the tune, the bassist simply replied: "there were only ten songs on the list". He also mentioned they tried to learn Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T.", but it was surprisingly more complicated to play. Even though the indie pop outfit didn't seem too psyched on the track, rest assured they pulled it off quite nicely. Watch their rendition below.
