Texas/Ohio’s El No, who released their debut LP ‘Nothing Is Possible’ on April 1, 2021, have announced the album’s follow up, ‘Hoodlums’. Offering a little more focus and hocus pocus on this one, the group boasts that it is heavy on mid-80s “hood culture” energy. You can listen to 1000 Low which the first track lifted from the album via YouTube below.
‘Nothing Is Possible’ garnered attention from The Big Takeover, New Noise Magazine, OffShelf, The Bad Copy, etc. establishing them as weirdos to watch.
Born and raised during the apocalypse of 2020, El No began as a collaboration between Nate Farley (Guided By Voices, The Amps, Robthebank, The Breeders) and Craig Nichols (Bellringer, Fur Coats, Dumbell, Shesus). With roots in the Dayton, Ohio, music scene, they are now both ex-pats living in Columbus, Ohio, and Austin, Texas, respectively. For ‘Hoodlums,’ the group has expanded their ranks and are now a four piece with the addition of Ohioans Jamy Holliday and Duane Hart.
El No is tentatively scheduled to release ‘Hoodlums’ via Howdy Mouse Records in April 2022 and is preparing to do some touring and festivals this coming year.
