Hoops have announced the first vinyl release of their early works Tapes #1-3. These tapes were all self-recorded and self-released before Fat Possum stumbled upon them on a YouTube channel by “Dave Osterman” – a.k.a. Hoops’ singer/guitarist Drew Auscherman. Previously only available as a limited 50-copy cassette tape run, all three collections will be available digitally, bundled on vinyl and cassette and out November 10th via Fat Possum. Along with the announcement, Hoops are sharing the music video the for Routines track “On Letting Go”.

Hoops was born in frontman Drew Auscherman’s teenage bedroom as a solo ambient and beat-driven project à la Oneohtrix Point Never’s Replica. Auscherman named the band after the hoop houses at the nursery where he worked (not for his home state’s mania for basketball). Eventually he corralled a few of his friends to flesh out his songs, and the music inevitably shifted toward something new: more melodic, more guitar-driven, more extroverted. Fast forward to 2017, and Hoops have released three cassette tapes, last year’s self-titled EP, and this year’s debut LP Routines.
