Bloomington, Indiana four-piece Hoops signed to Fat Possum, and announce the release of their debut EP. The self-titled effort – which Hoops self-recorded, produced and mixed – will be out on August 2016. What began as frontman Drew Auscherman's solo ambient project, Hoops ultimately became a quartet in 2014. Named for hoop houses in the greenhouses which Auscherman used to work in high school, Hoops draw on influences from Prefab Sprout and The Clientele, and recall the idea of breezy afternoons and sticky summer nights in both name and sound. The fuzzy, summer-ready Hoops EP follows the band's first releases, Tapes #1-3, which earned Hoops early praise from tastemakers across the board. Hoops is: Auscherman (vocals, guitar), Kevin Krauter (vocals, bass), Keagan Beresford (vocals, keyboards, guitar), and James Harris (drums).
