Hear Hums are nothing, if not a visually complex DIY band. Their tunes have enough grace to represent the light twinkling through the trees on an afternoon drive. But also enough raw noise to be the stiff bark of an old tree, within a dark city. Visual descriptions aside, Hear Hums is a band worth checking out. They give us the right amount of twists and turns, and will indeed please an experimental ear. For fans of Animal Collective, Mystic Chords of Memory, Do Make Say Think, and Broken Social Scene’s Feel Good Lost.
Hear Hums are out of Savannah Georgia and West Palm Beach Florida. There album is titled Notions Shift at Tryptamine Bay.
A brief Bio provided by the bands Myspace Music Page reads, “Hear Hums is an experimental/visual indie band started by Mitchell Myers in West Palm Beach, Florida. Notions Shift At Tryptamine Bay—the debut album—was recorded by Mitch in a spare bedroom of his parents’ house and released April 17th, 2009. Marcos Gasc and Kenzie Cooke joined in February 2009 after performing a completely improv ambient set at an art show with Mitch.”
