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. Â Indie pop duo Hockey Dad are conjuring up the sand, the waves and the summer abandon with ease on their first full-lengthÂ album coming out in August. Â Their initialÂ EP, Dreamin’, quickly won over fansÂ around the globe in 2014 and has since been repressed 3 more times. Â If you’re into the rich guitar layersÂ from the likes of Alvvays, Surfer Blood and Band of Horses, Hockey Dad is your new band, man. Â 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. Â Kanine Records is handling the US orders, and it looks like those variants will be on blue vinyl. Â You can grab those HERE, but there is no quantity listed. Â Listen to their feel-good summer single So Tired below.
Pre order the limited edition Tri-Colour vinyl and you'll get:
