Hoops x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Jenna Beasley
I met Jenna through my friend Judah. He asked us to play in his band Manneqin. Jenna played keyboards and I played guitar. We hit it off after playing in the band together. I immediately fell in love with Jenna’s art work. Her work ranges from xeroxed out flyers/abstract pieces to lovely paintings. …
Hoops x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Judah – O Yeah
Judah is my best friend in the whole wide world. It is pretty inspiring to always be able to hear what he is working on. He likes to hop around in terms of genre/style with his recordings. Sometimes he is working on breakneck punk rockers and other times he puts out beautiful gems like this. The guy…
Hoops x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: Rain Forest
I first “heard” this song only a few weeks ago. My friend Derek spun this at a show he was DJing last week and it was instantly recognizable. The synth melody paired with the flutes immediately rang a bell in my head. I had heard this song a very long time ago but had not…
Hoops x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover: my sleepytime playlist
This is a nice playlist of songs that I made. Its the perfect length and it will put your ass to sleep. If it doesn’t the first time around just start it over! That’s what I always do. There’s a little bit of everything on this playlist. Ambient, pop, …

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
With a new HOOPS LP somewhere on the not-too-distant horizon, the group's ever-prolific Drew Auscherman has shared a couple of promising solo demos on his soundcloud page. Unfinished and lo-fi funky AF, his diamonds-in-the-rough tend to be better than most of the stuff in the same vein that&apo…
