Fifth album from the Californian singer-songwriter, recorded in Bristol with John Parish (PJ Harvey, Aldous Harding, This Is The Kit).
While Hoop’s trademark finger-plucked guitar and ethereal textures remain, the songs and their presentation are ever more direct.
Parish “was a gentle collaborator until he killed one of my darlings” Hoop jests. “I’ve never been so brutally edited, and I wasn’t shy about expressing my discomfort at the sight of my work on the cutting room floor. He said, you will forgive me, and in some way, I think I actually enjoyed that treatment…being
stripped back to the bare basics…albeit painfully”.
