While this week isn’t quite as promising as the last few have been in the world of live music in New York, visits from Jack White, Alabama Shakes, Hooray For Earth, and Great Elk, just to name a few, are [READ ON]
Anyone fortunate enough to walk into the Music Hall of Williamsburg last Wednesday night certainly left without their socks — they had most definitely been rocked off. Those responsible for the laundry loss were Hooray for Earth (@hoorayforearth) and Cymbals Eat Guitars (@cymbls_eat_gtrs). Hooray for Earth’s sound, which frontman Noel Heroux described as somewhere between harsh noise and Enya, kicked off the evening. Their album True Loves , released this June, was featured heavily throughout [READ ON]
24 years ago today, the Earth shook, mountains crumbled, seas swelled, and, as a result, Eric Weiner was born to save us all from mediocre music. Tirelessly taking over car radios, making mix tapes, and sending out hordes of links for new bands, Eric has always done a fantastic [READ ON]
Erie and confusing, the new video for “Sails” by Hooray for Earth finds Madeline Zima of Californication running, digging, and looking pretty concerned. The footage, directed by David Parker and Cole Schreiber, is beautifully shot, setting the tone with ominous coloring and layered images. Particularly since they don’t incorporate footage from the band, this feels more like storytelling than an actual music video.
Filmed in only one night outside of Parkers home, the scenes collected are sparse but effected in a way to seem more interesting. Zima, attempting to escape the “maddening, inescapable labyrinth” of her life, finds and unearths a box she had buried before (which kind of brought THIS to mind purely for the “what’s in the box” element — enjoy). Hidden amongst the simple plot, though, are glitchy scene replays and repeated images, which a more complex theme.
As 2011 continues to fly by, we thought it would be helpful to release our list of the best that this year has had to offer in terms of new music. Thus far, it’s been a year of breathtaking full-length debuts (see: James Blake, GIVERS, Hooray For Earth) and albums [READ ON]

A year since the release of their debut EP Momo, New York-based Hooray For Earth (@hoorayforearth) has continued their strong momentum with the introduction of full-length, True Loves. While it may seem as though the album continues where the EP left off, the new music carries [READ ON]
A few weeks ago, Noel Heroux of Hooray For Earthand his friends from fellow Brooklyn group Zambri joined me and Lauren for a nice little afternoon in her Brooklyn backyard. Noel and the Zambri gang performed the brand new Hooray For Earth song, “True Loves”, as well as a Zambri’s “Carry”. These super interesting alternate takes of their songs are far different than what you’ll find on their album, but equally brillaint. I’ve been listening to “True Loves” on my iPhone for weeks now. Enjoy.
