Hum

Hum has a very loyal nearly cult like status amongst those fans who remember the timelessness sound of their albums You’d Prefer An Astronaut (1995) and Downward is Heavenward (1998). Prior to their headlining spot at the A.V. Club Festival, Hum did a warm up gig in Champaign, Illinois at the High Dive where they played old favorites and unreleased tune “Inklings” along with the new song “Cloud City” that droned and roared in its drop C. Hum have hinted they would possibly release the above two songs as an EP via lead singer Matt Talbott’s label/recording studio Earth Analog. Dibiase (Earth Analog’s first release) opened the show with their instrumental doom sludge. Setlists and pictures of both nights are here for your perusal.

  1. They played “Stars”??! Who woulda thunk it?!

  2. I would have loved to have seen one of these shows, as well as any of their other kindasorta reunion shows (I was too young to know who Hum was when they were releasing records). I hear their live show is amazingly loud. I can only imagine.

    Thanks for the setlists and info on the potential EP.
