File under: spaceship

Hooves is a band. No, it’s more than that: it’s an art project, a collision of noise and harmony, a conduit for exploration, a spaceship careening into the black. A 2013 Inlander Band to Watch, the Spokane, Wash. experimental psych outfit comes at its listener from every angle with a sound that is spacey and gothic, filled with rage and doom. The band’s first full release, a cassette entitled The Valley of the Craftsmen, released in April 2014.
