Song(s) of the Day # 2,917 Hook-Ups


Another great new release I've been directed to by Darren Jones. Domestic Fantasy a new album by Hook-Ups of Oakland, California..

 Full of light and cleverly constructed alternative pop.songs. Only ten tracks and nineteen minutes in total but it feels like longer because there's so much going on. Breathy vocals somewhere between Elliott and Jeff Tweedy and fascinating, between song snippets of everyday American mall life.

This is a quite wonderful, instant album that I'll be back to plenty. 2022 looking just great musically already.

  1. Glad you like it, Bruce! I've been playing it loads this week. Now going back to their record from last year, which was how I came across them, but didn't listen to enough for some reason.
