Hoops
Hoops, a Bloomington, Indiana based four-piece, conjures the idea of breezy afternoons and sticky summer nights - both in name and sound. Not named for the sweltering blacktop accompaniment, nor the waist- slinging hobby, but for hoop houses in the greenhouses where founding member Drew worked in high school. All told, Hoops began as Drew's solo ambient project. Over the course of 2014's (particularly sweltering) summer in Bloomington, Hoops naturally filled out into a four-piece lineup featuring; Drew Auscherman, Kevin Krauter, Keagan Beresford, and James Harris.
To date, Hoops has self-released three tapes which draw on influences such as Prefab Sprout and The Clientele. After playing occasional shows around Indiana, the guys slowly began taking weekend trips to nearby midwestern cities. Early adopters My Old Kentucky Blog and Gorilla vs. Bear were soon joined by the likes of FADER, Gold Flake Paint, NME and more in their praise of Hoops.
Still ingrained in the Bloomington music scene (Drew plays in Gum, Daguerreotype, Manneqin), their tapes are available to stream on YouTube - as well as other bands' tapes from around town. Hoops recently pressed "Tape #3" which contains all three tapes in one and is available to order by emailing the band.
Hoops self-titled EP is due out August 26th on Fat Possum.
No Lala
