"For those unfamiliar with Hoover III, the vibe is that of a driving, psychedelic space rock band, with enough shred-laden, dual-guitar work to impress the heads and more hooks than a Peter Pan (pirate?) convention. This batch of songs blends sweetness and crunch better than your favorite breakfast cereal and the effect lasts longer too. One listen and you’ll have these melodic riffs and caloric choruses buried in your mind grapes so deep you’ll need to have them surgically extracted. If you enjoyed the songs Bert wrote for Mind Meld, you won’t be disappointed by the penmanship Hoover has brought to the table here and there’s even more sonic layers to sink your canines into. It’s not surprising that this version of the band has stuck longer than any other and they’ve already shared stages with Oh Sees, Kikagaku Moyo, Fuzz, ORB, Acid Mothers Temple & more. Soon enough, you’ll be seeing them at the top of the bill, blowing the minds of everyone within earshot.”
