NY's Hopewell has been blending vintage fuzz pedal jams with their early space rock and shoegaze roots for over a decade, their 2001 full-length, The Curved Glass, being the perfect, noisy bridge between the epic psychedelia of Œ90s acts like Flaming Lips and Mercury Rev and a newer generation of bands that include Dungen, Dead Meadow and Serena-Maneesh. Now back with their sixth album, Good Good Desperation effortlessly slips from cacophonous dueling piano passages, to the Hammond-driven roots rock of The Basement Tapes, while creating something uniquely its own. Good Good Desperation is a defining chapter in Hopewell's lengthy history that includes countless singles and compilations, and opening for My Bloody Valentine on their recent reunion tour, working with producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, MGMT, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), recording a Peel session live at Abbey Road Studio.
