Introducing HOOVERIII! A psych-rock band from Los Angeles on the heels of releasing their newest album, Pointe. We had the pleasure of hearing and seeing their first single “The Tall Grass” and we are thrilled to hear the unique and stellar sounds they have put together on this record. Check it out below and let us know your thoughts!

Los Angeles Hooveriii (pronounced Hoover 3) have announced the October 13 release of their newest album, Pointe via The Reverberation Appreciation Society. To ring in the announcement, the band has shared the LP’s first single and a video for “The Tall Grass.”

“Every record is kind of a response to the last record and I like listening to people’s discographies like that,” Hoover explains. “When we finished A Round Of Applause we were in rock mode playing with a lot of rock and psych bands and I was really thinking about what do you do with a fourth record?” The answer turns out to be something more esoteric and less predictable than a guitar-driven album while retaining the core of the band’s sound, which has made the Los Angeles-based act such an exciting act to watch evolve. From the spacey groove of the opener “Prom” to the expansive, synth-friendly ballad “This Rock” and the epic future-folk experimentation of the album’s closer “Dreaming” (which features vocals by Anna Wallace), Pointe is an album that references the past while stretching toward an unknown future.

Wisely armed with bliss to fight our age of calamity, LA psych-kraut explorers Hooveriii return with their pastoral and expansive new album. “Pointe” is not the sound of Hooveriii maturing. It’s the sound of a band at the height of their power ascending.
