Hoover III – “Control”

Hoover III return to the fold, moving from Permanent records to the similarly psych-minded crew over at Reverberation Appreciation Society. With a heavier lean into prog (cut wit a dose of psych-pop) the band enters a quivering headspace that’s been occupied by Secret Machines, Spacemen 3 and Loop. The first single, “Control” pulses along on a chugging rhythm slashed by thick ropes of guitar and pillowed organ plumes. The band spent some time absorbing the air of Berlin before writing the album and there’s a legacy of the German Progressives in the bones of the album that rears its head here as well. Hoover and his crew continue to refine their space rock ruckus and “Control” ought to whet the appetite for what’s to come on 4/9 when “Water For The Frogs” lands on shelves.
