Hooves // Greater aspirations, Lowered expectations

I love me some good old fashion Rock and Roll. This ep is definitely that, an album to drink and sing along to. Fantastic drumming and guitar licks, along with a motherfucking trumpet player. All the bases are covered with this one. They are touring in June to promote this EP, so be sure to check and see if they are playing a city near you. Anyways, I have fond memories of hangin out with Andrew Krissberg and Chris Lamb from Hooves, drinking way too much whiskey and watching Happiness. Andy would be playing his acoustic guitar and singing, while Chris and I would be reading up on Abby Hoffman while smoking joints. Good times.

Here’s what Anjali Records had to say:
If fun had a sound track this would be it. The keys, the trumpet, the unison singing, the vibrato in the sing-it-like-you-mean it vocals push you way past go. The drums crave to be danced to. The songs are catchy with lots of fun surprises like trumpets, changing up the guitar or keyboard half way through the song. Its drinking music for those who like to yell and dance at the same time. (I bet you are bobbing your head or tapping your finger right now… and thinking about belting out the words next time you hear the song).

So let’s see. Man Man and Tapes ‘N Tapes are line dancing at a college hoe down chaperoned by The Rolling Stones; when all of a sudden Neutral Milk Hotel jumps in with the fruits (PBR) of a much anticipated beer run.

Stream and Download the album here…

Here’s some amateur video of them playing Modified Arts in Phoenix, Arizona..
