Editors’ Notes

Hailing from Philadelphia, Hop Along features the slightly unhinged voice and guitar work of Frances Quinlan. The trio’s prickly, volatile songs give its debut, Get Disowned, the feel of a group therapy session fused with a coffeehouse jam. Quinlan’s blend of abrasiveness and vulnerability brings such quirky artists as Kristin Hersh and Joanna Newsom to mind; her band’s loosely strung arrangements suggest everyone from Danielson Famile to The Shaggs. The gnarly sounds coursing through “Tibetan Pop Stars,” “No Good Al Joad,” “Young and Happy!,” and similar tunes reinforce the album’s emotionally conflicted lyrics. Quinlan murmurs, bellows, and plays fast and loose with pitch as she recounts unsettling childhood memories (“Trouble Found Me”), considers elusive love (“Kids on the Boardwalk”), and eulogizes a lost soul’s death (“Sally II”). Out of the prevailing sonic tumult emerge unexpected hooks and rhythms, like the slippery R&B groove beneath “Laments.” Ultimately, Quinlan and her cohorts infuse Get Disowned with an irrepressible joy that makes its most cacophonous moments go down easily.

Customer Reviews

This is the best album of the year if not the decade.

This band has an extremely unique sound and is comprised of very talented musicians. The songwriting from this band is one of the best and is the most honest I have ever heard. Nothing beats 'Hop Along'.

Best Album Of 2012

This is by far the best Independent release from this year, so far and I can't recommend it enough. Get Disowned is one of the most emotive Indie-Folk albums i have ever heard. It's been getting quite a bit of hype on the website Sputnikmusic. Get Disowned opens up with it's weakest track, Some Grace. Not really a bad song but i just wish they would've started the album off with Tibetan Pop Stars cause it's much stronger. When Frances Quinlan yells "Nobody deserves you the way that i do" it sends shivers down my spine. Frances' voice is an acquired taste. Personally, I like unique vocal styles, so i fell in love with her voice immediately. Like i said, this is a very emotive album, and that's mostly because of her vocals. Not to mention her vocal melodies are extremely unique as well. Laments is the other stand-out track, and by far my favorite. It is actually a remade version of the song Laments of a Mattress from their 2006 album Freshman Year. The version on that album is entirely acoustic, while this one has added instrumentation. Laments is chock-full of some of the best lyrics too. BUY THIS NOW


Just saw them live at a concert in Dallas at Club Dada and they sound great. Even better live I think. Go hop along!

Years Active: '10s

Philadelphia's Hop Along meld the captivating, idiosyncratic vocals of singer/songwriter/guitarist Frances Quinlan with heavy doses of sincerity and explosiveness to form a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants indie rock. The group metamorphosed from Quinlan's quirky, lo-fi indie folk solo project called Hop Along, Queen Anslies, which released one album, Freshman Year, in 2005. Her brother Mark Quinlan joined her on drums in 2008, Tyler Long was added on bass in 2009, the name was shortened to Hop Along,...
