Super Genuine is a soft rock album for people who are sorting out unhealthy dynamics, whether it’s with a friend, a partner, a family member, an authority figure, or the dystopian reality we all live in.

  Hoop began as a recording project between songwriters and multi-instrumentalists Caitlin Roberts (Autococoon) and Nich Wilbur (Hungry Cloud Darkening) at Wilbur’s studio The Unknown in Anacortes, WA, while Roberts was living in town for eight months in 2014. The songs they created could only have been made in this pensive small-town environment. Wilbur’s minimalist taste and Roberts’ knack for melody merge to create a sound that is equal parts precise and soft. The recording exhibits sparse yet driving instrumentation and calm distortion, iced with Roberts’ moody, deliberate vocal performance, and Allyson Foster’s (Mount Eerie, LAKE, Stephen Steinbrink) and Briana Marela's hi-fi ear-candy vocal cameos. Super Genuine is grunge nostalgia augmented by the emotional intelligence of a 21st-century feminist and the sensibilities of a skilled producer.

First Edition of 100 translucent blue cassette tapes with printed labels. Artwork and layout by Paul Benson. Comes with a digital download. LP released by Decency Den Records and CD released by Jigsaw Records.
