Hooveriii recently dropped the kick-ass 7″ single Guillotine and I couldn’t be more excited about their upcoming S/T album! Guillotine marked shift in sound for the project (previously a one-man, lo-fi, drum machine rock’n roll outfit), adding a heap of skilled musicians to cook some serious krautadelic, psychedelic garagerock that sticks to your membrane like sugar on hot porridge. The first available track from the album “Bird On A Wire” adds to the sweet flavour of the single, bearing promise of a plate that’s bound to tickle your buds and stroke your uvula. Permanent Records started taking pre-orders a couple of weeks back, but there’s a few limited Splatters left as I type. This album is gonna be grand, don’t miss out!
If you’ve been paying attention to in LA’s psych/garage-scene, Bert Hoover should definitely have popped up on your radar by now! As 1/3 of the force behind the brilliant label Mock Records (Spyrals, Jesus Sons, Mind Meld, Froth ++) and a key-member among others Cab 20, Jesus Sons and Mind Meld, he’s partly responsible for some of the coolest sounds to come out of the area for close to a decade already. Under his moniker Hooveriii he has steadily been dropping releases (digital/cassettes) with recordings where he’s up until now been the sole-performer, but has now summoned some of his coolest cats to add their talents to the mix. In addition to Bert himself, Hooveriii now consists of Gabe Flores (Babylon), Kaz Mirblouk (Numb.Er), Shaughnessy Starr (Jesus Sons/Triptides) and Jaiq Styne (Altar Egos, ex-Mothdrops)
Never before has a debut album so seamlessly mixed all the best subgenres of 60 years of rock into such a fantastic crystalline stalactite. If the sounds contained within these grooves could be distilled down to something edible, even the smallest dose would be lethal.
Recorded under the influence of Hawkwind, Amon Düül II, Black Sabbath and NEU!
