Drazy Hoops

The Infinite Starlight

Slow Burn

I approached this album with considerable trepidation. For some reason, I mistook the album and song titles for a new age album. Alas, I was pleasantly surprised. The Infinite Starlight is an ace album of tracks that evoke the better elements of British psychedelia. In fact, listening to this album reminds me of Julian Cope’s early work. However, what makes this album so much fun is Drazy Hoops’ voice. He blends J Mascis’ slacker croak and Dave Berman’s mystic detachment on songs that positively shimmer. The production and arrangements are spotless and highlight Drazy Hoops’ considerable skill as a songwriter. It is difficult to not see this as a harbinger for significant releases to come.
