"... another spellbinding guitar jam ... Rules is an expressionist, blissed-out pop song. Airy, uptempo guitars float on the surface, accompanied by bouncy bass and complex drum work."
- The FADER

"... (the irresistibly slick Rules) is loaded with the intoxicating guitar lines and murmured melodies we associate with this outfit. The single is a dizzying head rush that clocks in at just over two minutes and will surely have you pressing play several times in a sitting."
- Paste

Bloomington, Indiana's Hoops releases its long-anticipated debut album Routines, the follow-up to a highly-acclaimed EP in 2016. Described by Hoops as "a bittersweet and honest record that sounds both warmly familiar and jarringly distinctive," Routines marks the band's first time working in a real studio rather than recording in living rooms and basements.

"We tried to mix things up a little more with these songs than we did with our other releases, but we still wanted this one to be a true-to-form guitar banger compacted into a short timeframe. We always have a lot of fun taking a big, loud song like (Rules) and making it more concise. Drum machines are also sick."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
