HIDEOUT is Manhattan-based songwriter Gabriel Rodriguez, who's also a longtime band
member of Cults. His sophomore album So Many Hoops/So Little Time is due out February 3rd 2017 via Small Plates Records.

It’s been two years since the release of Hideout’s debut album Rookie, and in that time many
things have changed for Rodriguez. Most tragically, the passing of his brother. So Many Hoops/So Little Time deals with grief in different spectrums –– the album ranges both sonically & lyrically from whimsical space-pop to crushing acoustic vulnerability. There isn’t a singular concept or message, but the deeper you delve into Hideout’s world the more you feel nostalgia and a sense of loss.

Hideout began as a recording project. The majority of Rookie was recorded while on the road
with Cults. Rodriguez took advantage of the downtime by tracking songs in hotel rooms or at
friends’ homes. Fast-forward to the forthcoming So Many Hoops. . . –– mixed by Loren
Humphrey (Nice As Fuck, Cults, Guards) at Stockholm Syndrome Sound Studio in Bushwick,
NY & features guest vocalist Scarlett Connolly –– the recording process was far more linear
than Rookie. The album evolved predominantly at Rodriguez’s apartment while the surrounding turmoil of loss sunk in. Emotionally charged, he turned to the art of songwriting & storytelling to help navigate through the many answerless questions.

Now a fully realized band, Hideout has been performing live with a rotating cast of New York
musicians over the past year. It’s just the beginning.
Nation of Language
Nation of Language
Nation of Language is a band from Brooklyn that was formed by Ian Richard Devaney after rediscovering the post punk and new wave bands that had soundtracked his early childhood.

The band has spent the last few months self-booking tours from the American Midwest to Europe and the UK, getting the chance to spend time talking with new fans and some great radio stations along the way.

The band enjoys doing its own visual design and video production, and printing shirts and patches in a style that is in keeping with their love of unrefined simplicity. They have just released their first music video to accompany their second single, “I’ve Thought About Chicago”.
