ALPHA HOPPER "ALOHA HOPPER" LP
by Alpha Hopper
11 SONG VINYL LP ON COKE BOTTLE CLEAR VINYL
Buffalo, New York's Alpha Hopper continues to serve up sophisticated experimental punk that's equal parts ear-worms and math homework with their second LP, "Aloha Hopper." Elements of punk, hardcore, noise rock, and no-wave all come together in a frenetic stew of guitar-driven rock & roll built on a foundation of minimalism and repetition. The female-fronted foursome create a complex wall of sound that is dark, weird and intense, yet still decidedly fun and playful. Think if Melt Banana, Daughters, Liars, or Arab on Radar dropped out of art school after a few semesters and cut their teeth on power chords in the basement instead. "AlohaHopper" comes out June 22nd on Swimming Faith and Radical Empathy Records.
