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.

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 drop Hoodlums via Howdy Mouse Records in April 2022 and is preparing to do some touring and festivals this year. Today, they share the video for “Seance,” which features footage shot by Nichols at the Texas Chainsaw Graveyard in Leander, Texas.
