Hoops x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover
Hoops' debut LP Routines is officially out today on Fat Possum, and to celebrate the release of one of our favorite records of the year so far, we've asked the group's Drew Auscherman to run things here on the site all day. Drew will be sharing some of the stuff he's into at the …
video premiere: Hoops – On Top
Bloomington's Hoops share the video for their blissed-out new single "On Top", one of the many highlights from the group's forthcoming debut LP Routines. The gently warped and sweetly inspirational Kevin Krauter-penned jam gets a fitting vintage VHS public access vibe, co…
video: Drew Auscherman of Hoops – Company
That Prince-inspired demo from HOOPS' Drew Auscherman that we posted up a couple weeks back gets a no-budget video. "Company" will appear on a tape that Drew is releasing later this year. Vid by Sean Albert.
Hoops share a track from their forthcoming debut LP Routines
Bloomington's Hoops share the first glimpse at their stellar forthcoming debut LP Routines, and the group stays pretty true-to-form in the best possible way with the typically melodic, blissed-out and easy guitar pop gem "Rules", which I believe floated around in solo demo for…
stream two new demos from HOOPS’ Drew Auscherman

premiere: stream Permit’s Vol. 1 EP
Psyched to premiere the new EP from Bloomington's Permit, the new project from Jack Andrew and the prolific Drew Auscherman of Hoops. The duo makes blistering, super infectious, feel-good lo-fi garage-pop/punk rippers -- think “Thin Lizzy, but twice as fast”, in the …
new Hoops – Gemini
Hoops unveil another absolute gem from their forthcoming self-titled EP, due later this month on Fat Possum: Listen to the dreamily wistful "Gemini", which the band intended to be "a sort of dramatic Fleetwood Mac sounding thing", below + pre-order the EP here:
premiere: HOOPS - Cool 2
"Cool 2 was one of the first songs we wrote for the EP. We like it because it is short, but it also represents what we want to do as a band. We tried to create an atmosphere around a short chord progression."
premiere: listen to Hoops Tape #3
We still have the first two tapes from Drew Auscherman's lo-fi guitar pop project Hoops on heavy rotation, and the Bloomington group (now a 4-piece) is back with their third warm and fuzzy collection of endlessly replayable, sun-warped jams, in the form of the 5-song Tape #3...
