CRITIC REVIEWS

Under The Radar

Simply put, this is the best dream/jangle-pop debut since ... Oshin and an absolute must for fans of this genre.

80
AllMusic

Throughout ... the sound is so consistent, alluring, and distinctive that it's hard to believe that they have all three members contributing songs here. Whatever their process, Hoops seem to have figured it out before this official first impression, an accomplishment even without the solid tunes and disarming spirit.

80
The 405

Routines is pure summery guitar pop, meant for car rides at dusk as the pinkish hues of the sun reflect off the faces of friends.

70
Pitchfork

The lo-fi bedroom rock project from Indiana brings smooth guitar licks into clearer focus with their Fat Possum debut, a light and bright collection of weaving, winding psych-pop.

70
No Ripcord

Routines is a superb collection of effortless songs, and like their closest contemporaries Real Estate earlier in 2017, Hoops have delivered a leading example of guitar pop.

Paste

Hoops are a pleasant break from the norm, indie easy-listening, escapism when it’s arguably needed most.

‘Routines’ isn’t an album that’s going to change the world, but it is a pretty good reminder to stop, slow down and take things in once in a while.

I love the sun-kissed guitars, sorrowful yet endearing lyrics, and the lo-fi production that just come together to make this album feel like a warm summer day.

'Routines' resulta ser un disco bastante parejo, fácil de escuchar, con unos cuantos momentos deslumbrantes y sin ningun obstáculo en su camino. Aunque le falte un poco de factor sorpresa, el primer capitulo en la historia de Hoops es bastante recomendable.

Canciones Favoritas: On Top, Benjals, Burden, Management.

Divertido y soleado,pero le hace falta más variedad pues solo una cancion suena diferente al resto, un album solo para veranear.
