    The Hoot Hoots

    Power Pop

    Seattle power pop group The Hoot Hoots are irresistible party starters. Their songs are powered by fuzzy guitars, fuzzier keyboards, and headhum-inducing hooks, and all these combine in a glorious, slightly insane energy in both their live shows and in their new album, Colorpunch.

    Seattle Weekly has compared them favorably to the Shins, the Deli Seattle Magazine has praised them for their “flashy, out-of-control pop sensibilities,” and Seattle radio 90.3 KEXP named their song “Go For a Walk” their Song of the Day, calling it a “brilliant pop tune and nothing you should skip out on”. Think vintage Flaming Lips with a splash of NES and a dash of the Unicorns, and you get the idea.

    Lead vocalist/guitarist Adam Prairie grew up with his brother/drummer Chris in the middle of Midwestern corn fields in Clifton, IL. The two played whiffle ball and Nintendo, watched the original Star Wars trilogy obsessively, and learned to play guitars and Casio keyboards in the bedroom they shared for most of their formative years. They wrote a few songs in high school, but they mostly tinkered with sounds until Adam left home to study at Knox College in western Illinois followed by Chris a few years later.

    “The Hoot Hoots really took shape at the end of my stay at Knox,” Adam said. “Chris and I wrote and performed music for a psychedelic 60’s production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It, and we were kind of overwhelmed how much people were into it. That was the first time we both thought, ‘Maybe we should give this band thing a shot.’ ”

    They’ve also relentlessly hit the road the last couple years, making stops in the Midwest, Southwest, Texas, West Coast, and all over the Pacific Northwest. And they somehow manage to do it stuffed into a Toyota Prius.

    Model Shop

    Indie Pop

    Model Shop sprung to life when long-time collaborators Kevin Emerson and Ethan Jones (Math and Physics Club, Central Services, Northern Allies) convinced bassist Jen Fox (Way South, These People Here) to make an honest trio out of their mischievous musings. Now in play are tangrams of driving rock, jangle fuzz, playful harmonies, and refreshing optimism that recombine into new shapes equally at peace on rain soaked afternoons and hopeful summer days.

    Recommended for fans of Math and Physics Club, Guided by Voices, James, Teenage Fanclub, the Posies, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Big Star, the Go-Betweens, Built to Spill, Death Cab for Cutie, and Velvet Crush.
