Since they confirmed that Soldier: 76 is from Bloomington, IN (where my college is), our program wrote to Blizzard asking if he went to IU. Sadly he didn’t attend, but we DID get this sweet figurine in the mail!
“Gemini” by Hoops // EP (Out August 26, 2016 via Fat Possum)
Loving everything about these guys last few releases. The playful atmosphere that weaves throughout their work is on display on “Gemini”, but also the Bloomington, Indiana based quartet drift further out into a dreamy melancholic state of beauty that feels like some wonderfully strange but forgotten 80′s pop gem. Just about perfect.
