Full Hand - Fairly Good, Based on 2 Critics

AllMusic - 70
Based on rating 7/10

With his Bloomington band still actively recording, Hoops bassist Kevin Krauter presents his second solo set, Full Hand. Reminiscent of the wistful, AM radio-inspired lo-fi rock of Hoops without replicating it, Krauter's music has tended to rely more heavily on keyboard textures and an even blurrier soft-rock vibe. An insular album that reflects on past struggles, the concept of growth, and the realization that there is rarely any resolution in life, its murky musicality combines electric, electronic, and acoustic timbres as well as mixed inspirations.

Pitchfork - 62
Based on rating 6.2/10

Kevin Krauter makes soft, well-worn shoegaze music, kind of like that old sweater from high school you still keep around. The Indiana musician and Hoops bassist's second album, Full Hand, is first and foremost a spring record; it makes for nice background noise as the sun stays out longer and the grass gets greener. The 12 songs are breezy and genteel, with very little brewing below the surface.
