“A dusty sleep you took too soon. And you, you need watering if you are to bloom.“
[RCA] • 1998/01/27 • Style: Alternative/Indie Rock, Space Rock
For me, Hum are the Barry Sanders of the music world. They had scored a hit in “Stars” and then followed it up another spectacular space rock jamming trip only to be packed in by the different trials of the music industry. The constant moving and hard-hitting, yet melodic guitar work, mixed with crafty quirky lyrics, and a consistent playlist throughout will leave you in awe. What they could have done with one or two more albums makes me ache in pain. ~jk
