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.
