Furious Hoops Vol. 01 out Record Store Day 2015!

We've collected music and art to pay homage to the greatest era of basketball in human history—the 1990s. Musicians and artists from alls round the globe gathered together to create something as memorable, unique, and furious as the players who inspired it.

Not to mention all are playing this year's Savannah Stopover Festival. And don't forget to buy your tickets today! We'll be having another one of our Furhoof Showcases this year as well!

Heavenly Beat (Brooklyn, NY)

Coming off a boisterous career serving on the Captured Tracks label (2 LPs & multiple 45s), Heavenly Beat releases his third full-length album, entitled Eucharist, adding even more coconut to what I have coined the best "piña colada pop" around. Eucharist out on limited deluxe-cassette this Valentine's Day via Furhoof: Sixth Man. Check out the video for "Eucharist" and pre-order here.

Black Water Choir (Savannah, GA)

Black Water Choir is the collective mind of Corey Hines, blending folk and alt-country styles with a dark-pop influence echoing throughout. The namesake & music pays homage to the black water rivers that meander through the low-country of the southern United States. Furhoof: Sixth Man is proud to present the debut tape later this Spring.

Grand Vapids (Athens, GA)

Stereogum compares their "droning indie rock sound" to the likes of Galaxie 500, Low, and Deerhunter, but Grand Vapids truly is like no other. Carving out a wave of slow-pop guitar sound, their debut LP Guarantees you will be feeling all sorts of hushed chills. Limited Cassette out March 3rd via Furhoof: Sixth Man.


Attn: Savannah-based musicians & bands! We're putting together the next volume of Stay Rad compilations: the Savannah Edition. Go to furioushooves.com/stayrad for more info.
