Hot Wheels Announcing Debut Album "Sun Blonde" - Due May 17th

Earth Libraries is proud to announce the release of Hot Wheels' debut album, Sun Blonde on May 17th (digital / LP). 

Project of LA-based artist and musician, Dan Bruinooge, Hot Wheels is an impressionistic ode to driving in LA, to putrid oranges, tangerine sunsets, and atomic fireballs. When you realize you didn’t use sunscreen but the feeling of the celestial rays makes the sunburn worth it. It’s music for traveling, weaving through genres and landscapes, from new age drones to nostalgic pop hits, surf rock instrumentals to chants about emptiness.

His debut album, Sun Blonde, jumps from meditative drone pieces to radio-friendly hits. It plays like a soundtrack for an outsider's experience in LA. It could perhaps best be paired with driving in a convertible in deadlock traffic with the sun blaring in your face; dwelling and blissing out in its beauty, complexity and melancholy. The first two singles off of the album, "August" and "Big Wave" are available now wherever you get your music.
