Hooverphonic

The Belgian ambient pop band Hooverphonic featured vocalist Liesje Sadonius, guitarist/programmer Alex Callier, keyboardist Frank Duchêne, and guitarist Raymond Geerts. Known simply as Hoover across Europe, the group made their initial splash contributing the song "2Wicky" to the soundtrack of the 1996 Bernardo Bertolucci film Stealing Beauty, followed a year later by the full-length New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular. Sadonius left Hooverphonic a short time later, and was replaced by vocalist Geike Arnaert in time to record 1998's Blue Wonder Power Milk. The band went from strength to strength during the next decade, releasing three more studio albums and a live orchestral album, Sit Down and Listen to Hooverphonic, but left Sony BMG in 2006 in protest at lack of support from the label, releasing a singles compilation as a contractual obligation. In 2008 they signed with the powerhouse Belgian indie PIAS to release the album The President of the LSD Golf Club, but shortly after its release, Arnaert left the band to pursue a solo career. Undeterred, the band began the search for a replacement. After receiving thousands of applications from all over the world, they finally decided on a young Belgian woman, Noémie Wolfs, who had almost no previous musical experience. Their first album with Wolfs on vocals, entitled The Night Before, was issued in 2010. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Digging these Hoovermatic
It's interesting how the bios mention albums that Pandora doesn't have in its collection. I haven't commented yet but Hooverphonic has been part of my music landscape and represents the mystery and magic of the music underground. Some of their stuff I'm not too keen on but then some is precious to me. There is so much more than 2Wicky, guys.
This band is amazing.
Don't read this because it really works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life however if you do not post this comment to at least three songs, you'll die in two days. Now you've started reading this don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes. When it's done press F6 your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is scary because it actually works.
I'm basically a lover of progressive rock, but I do love this band. Well with Geike.. I haven't listened much to the new stuff, but find that I crave hearing Eden all the time.
Love this band! When Geike left 2008, I was not open to Noémie playing the old Hooverphonic songs. I like the new album with her singing and have tried to enjoy her playing the older songs. I can still pop in the old CDs and have 2Wicky the way I remember..an y t i m e ! And like several other posts...wher e is the rest of Hooverphonic ' s discography? Like to hear MORE!

You found 2Wicky? Isn't it great? Did you know it was written by Burt Bacharach? Amazing, huh? Just goes to show that a musician is a musician is a musician and can change and grow.
2Wicky just came on... I heard it only once on the radio on Chocalate City in 1997 and was lucky enough to record it on cassette? I was in High School back then. Right now, I am on base and I was laying down trying to go to sleep then it just suddenly came on and I recognized it in the beginning. I was like 'Wo Sh*t!' I can't believe it came on after all these years and now I know who it is. Awesome song!!!
Thank you @heroshot!
Love this band, 'Mad About You' is one of the best songs I have heard in a long while.
Liesje is an effin HOTIE
O helz yeah
this band is sick, i love it, sitting home dancing with a drink in my hand.
I absolutely agree that Pandora needs to do a better job updating their database so that it includes the newer albums from Hooverphonic . For all those wondering, here is the discography:

1996 A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular
1998 Blue Wonder Power Milk
2000 The Magnificent Tree
2002 Hooverphonic Presents Jackie Cane
2003 Sit Down and Listen to Hooverphonic (Live, unplugged recordings)
2005 No More Sweet Music
2007 The President of the LSD Golf Club
2010 The Night Before (new vocalist)
now i can stop searching for that hard drive i lost back in 2000.... ccheeah!
"The President of the LSD Golf Club" Needs to be added...
What's up Pandora? These guys have released like 4 albums since 2000.
The ultimate chill and relax kind of music... Yes, thank god for great music. Life would be so dull and chaotic without it
thank goodness for gr8t music ;^)
2Wicky is amaaaazing.
yeah, it's not the same as portishead.
I've heard this before... Oh yeah, Portishead.
Aaah, bliss, grooving to tracks from "Blue Wonder Power Milk" right now. Just ordered that cd and "A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular" since I can't find those downloads to buy online. Already got tracks from "President of the LSD Golf Club," one of their more recent releases. Can't go wrong with a title like that!!
is it any good Patrick?
No more sweet music (2 discs double sided music one side videos on the other) was the last album they did. It is available as an import. Each CD has the same songs but mixed differently.

I love the first two albums, wasn't crazy about Tree. I can't find any other EPs in U.S. I was hoping Pandora would have them, but no such luck. I suppose I'll never know what the band does now.
I agree-- 2Wicky sounds a lot like Portishead. I love it.
Why do they keep listing Liesje as the vocalist? Didn't she leave the band in 1998?
Did pandora get bored and decide not to add "No more Sweet Music', and "President of the LSD Golf Club"??
They need to keep this thing updated.
schweitzerst y l e
"2Wicky" is a little Portishead-e s q u e .
They compare Hooverphonic to Jane Jensen and Poe? Wow!!!! But The Gathering? They are way too beautiful to rank with this band. Not that they're not good, just way different. Who can tell me about Woven and Broadcast?
