Dinked #58 brings us the second studio album from the Bloomington, Indiana-based indie poppers, Hoops, released on Fat Possum on October 2nd!
Halo comes after a nearly 3 year hiatus, shortly following the release of Hoops’ debut, a time in which the band members focussed on solo projects (bassist Kevin Krauter released a fantastic debut album this year). Hoops are masters of the art of lo-fi dream pop, fusing cuttingly direct pop songwriting with the woozy textures of shoegaze and the direct, hushed vocals of bedroom pop, often resembling The War On Drugs playing C86 covers or The Pains of Being Pure at Heart at their most ethereal. Halo feels especially of its time, with its post-Chillwave vibes resembling the very best of current bedroom pop, but the songwriting ensures that it will still sound great for years to come. Fans of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Wild Nothing, Soccer Mommy or even early Tame Impala will happily get lost in these expansive textures!
The Dinked Edition of Halo is limited to 400 copies on beautiful green and blue vinyl with an exclusive alternate colour sleeve and 7″ copy of the English Breakfast covers EP. You can pre-order your copy using the options below. For international orders please contact us before ordering as postage rates vary.
