RIYL: Surfer Blood, Alvvays, Yuck

Label: Kanine Records / Farmer and the Owl

I’ve never been there, but the beaches on the coast of New South Wales, Australia must be absolute perfection.  Indie pop duo Hockey Dad are conjuring up the sand, the waves and the summer abandon with ease on their first full-length album coming out in August.  Their initial EP, Dreamin’, quickly won over fans around the globe in 2014 and has since been repressed 3 more times.  If you’re into the rich guitar layers from the likes of Alvvays, Surfer Blood and Band of Horses, Hockey Dad is your new band, man.  Dive in.

Just as a heads up, the ‘buy’ link takes you to the Australian tri-color variant, so the shipping is going to be steeper.  Kanine Records is handling the US orders, and it looks like those variants will be on blue vinyl.  You can grab those HERE, but there is no quantity listed.  Listen to their feel-good summer single So Tired below.
