Album Notes
"With The Shins on sabbatical and quirky pop outfit The Unicorns long-dissolved in other projects, The Hoot Hoots have picked up the torch, carefully building on the idiosyncratic, whimsical sounds of those bands with their second release, Appetite for Distraction, a 10-song long cakewalk crammed with tight pop melodies, expressive, lush harmonies, and kooky sound effects across the board... While the group's fun-loving, reverential spirit keeps them orbiting their influences, their high-energy songbook, full of stories about ghosts and robots and brain eating dinosaurs, captures the essence of goof-pop with upbeat, irrepressible glee."
- Gwendolyn Elliott, Seattle Weekly

"Power pop quartet The Hoot Hoots know how to have fun, and their newest release Appetite for Distraction proves it. Their second full-length album of the year is rife with singsong choruses, idyllic imagery and enough peppy riffing to keep listeners feeling fuzzy long after the last track has finished."
- The Deli Seattle Magazine

"We love the Hoot Hoots. They're funny. They're fun. And when they're on stage singing about outer space, robots, food, or the X-Files, you're dancing, screaming, singing, laughing and smiling along with them the whole time. The Hoot Hoots are the band Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes would have made when he got older; incredibly imaginative, funny, energetic, and quite poignant at times, too."
- Tim from Seattle band Sad Face

The Hoot Hoots have, "flashy, out of control pop sensibilities" and possess the "ability to boisterously belt lyrics about outer space and somehow seem tender at times as well- even in the same song. They're a strange amalgam of influences, that bunch, and really, they are an incredible live band."
- The Deli Seattle Magazine
