>HOOPS L-I-V-E @ LUNA music RELEASE DAY IN-STORE PERFORMANCE!
FRIDAY, 26 AUGUST 2016 6:00PM
Hoops, a Bloomington (and Indianapolis), 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 Auscherman 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.

>>Join us as we celebrate the release of our pals' 'HOOPS EP.,'—their first for Fat Possum records!

>Death Grips - Bottomless Pit CD/LP (Harvest)
Bottomless Pit finds Ride (aka Stefan Burnett), producer Flatlander (aka Andy Morin), and drummer Zach Hill in their most cohesive and incendiary form since 2012’s The Money Store. Flatlander obfuscates and annihilates seemingly insurmountable soundscapes with the help of Hill’s passioned and precise drumming, as well as Ride’s occultist and misanthropic rage. All of this is focused through a new lens where the band’s actions no longer dictate their relevance — Death Grips are Death Grips because of what they make, not what they do. Bottomless Pit is Death Grips 2.0, as promised.” – Consequence Of Sound

>The Chris Robinson Brotherhood – Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel CD/LP (Silver Arrow)
When the Chris Robinson Brotherhood headed into the studio to begin recording their fourth album,
Any Way You Love, We Know How You Feel, no one knew just what to expect. These would be the band's first recordings with new drummer Tony Leone (Ollabelle, Levon Helm), their first since the departure of founding bassist Mark “Muddy" Dutton,” and their first time producing themselves. But as anybody who's been following the CRB can attest, this is a band that thrives on the unexpected. “Instead of seeing these things as challenges, we started to see them as something exciting,” explains Robinson. “It was an opportunity to see where our expression could take us. Some people get really uptight when they're making records, but for us, the looser it gets the better. It's all about taking our intuition and following it to where our ideas can really manifest themselves. This turned out to be the most spontaneous record I've ever been a part of.” Not coincidentally, Robinson also cites it as perhaps the best recording experience of his life. The band relocated to northern California for the sessions, recording on the side of a mountain overlooking the foggy Pacific Ocean and channeling the natural majesty and melancholic weather of their surroundings into the album's eight, epic, immersive tracks.

>Descendents – Hypercaffium Spazzinate CD/LP+MP3 (Epitaph)
On their first album in 12 years, vocalist Milo Aukerman, drummer Bill Stevenson, guitarist Stephen Egerton, and bassist Karl Alvarez channel an energy just as raw and jittery as in their earliest days—a time when the band was driven by the equally mighty forces of “rejection, food, coffee, girls, fishing, and food.”
Hypercaffium Spazzinate began taking shape soon after the Descendents surfaced from extended hiatus for a series of gigs in 2010. With Milo now living in Delaware, Karl and Bill in Colorado, and Stephen in Oklahoma, the album came to life over a three-year period in which the band sent tracks back and forth and occasionally met up in Karl and Bill’s adopted hometown of Fort Collins. “Since the dawn of rock-and-roll every band’s tried to pretend they exist in the age group of 18 to 35, no matter how old they get,” says Karl. “But this band’s very honest about the fact that we’re not teenagers anymore.” “Each time we make a record it’s almost like the first time all over again,” says Bill. “There’s a quote from Ornette Coleman about how the song is the territory, and what you do with the song is the adventure. We’re definitely still going on all these little adventures together.” [CD is available in regular and Deluxe editions. Deluxe adds five bonus tracks. Limited white vinyl pressing also available.]

>ANGEL OLSEN My Woman PURPLE vinyl LP
Anyone reckless enough to have typecast Angel Olsen according to 2013’s 'Burn Your Fire For No Witness' is in for a rethink with her third album, 'MY WOMAN.' The crunchier, blown-out production of the former is gone, but that fire is burning wilder. Her disarming, timeless voice is even more front-and-center. Yet, the strange, raw power and slowly unspooling incantations of her previous efforts remain.
