Hop Along

(Scott)- and yet another band that comes recommended to me/us by Jon S......Hop Along is another
one with which I am unfamiliar, but I do respect Jon's tastes in general, and it's pretty exciting that he calls their release from last year one of the best albums of the year.....sounds intriguing, it's a damn good thing I get to listen to music my entire eight hour shift each night or I wouldn't catch up with a third of this stuff. Thanks a million Jon S.

Hop Along is a Philadelphia band, like Waxahatchee. Painted Shut was one of my favorite albums last year, and this band is on the short list of those I most look forward to their next release. Like Car Seat Headrest, this started as a solo project, not becoming a band until a few years after. I'm just sending the band stuff but if anyone wants the earlier stuff, just say (really, for completists only).
