Product Description

Product Description

The Hoosiers release their brand new studio album 'THE NEWS FROM NOWHERE' on April 14th 2014.

The follow-up to top 10 albums 'THE TRICK TO LIFE' and 'THE ILLUSION OF SAFETY', the new album was produced by the band, and recorded in the East London warehouse where bassist Martin Skarendahl has amassed a collection of vintage recording equipment and instruments. The News From Nowhere is an astonishing return to form. “Doing it on our own terms,” says lead singer Irwin Sparkes, “and actually having a proper say in it, felt wonderful. We have nothing to lose, but a lot to prove.”

From the opening bars of 'Somewhere in the Distance' to the closing notes of 'Nathan's Loft', The News From Nowhere is the sound of a band who have rediscovered what they love about music, and why they need to make it together. Gone is the self-consciousness of the dog days around their second album; gone, too, the self-doubt. In their place is a deeply rooted – and hard-won – confidence, and a determination to lock back in to the freedom and joy of the early days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a week or so to warm upto you 28 July 2014

Always been a huge Hoosiers fan. I even bought their 2nd album! This album is a little...different to their normal stuff. When I first heard it I was not incredibly happy with it, but after listening to it over the period of a week or so all I can say is that I LOVE IT. This might possibly be my favorite album, which makes me even happier when I found out that this is their first "indie" album after leaving sony due to issues with the 2nd albums promotion.

The Hoosiers are back with a good mix of tunes and are back on form after the previous album was a bit of a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended 15 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
I must admit Ive not been a massive fan of The Hoosiers before finding them just a little too 'poppy' for my usual tastes but having heard and been very impressed with 'somewhere in the distance' i took a look at the album and its actually really good. Whilst some songs do still retain the quirky pop they are known for eg Fidget Brain it somehow just works. Overall a much more mature sound, they are not trying 'too hard' and just made and enjoyed making the music with a variety of music sounds. make or break is also a cracking song.
Check it out, you wont be disappointed.
Oh, and apparently this is completely self funded by the band themselves which is a massively brave thing to try in this day and age so if you buy youll be sure the money is going to them not some fat cats in a billion pound record company.
