Catch HUME (Washington DC) this Thursday at the Crack Fox
Hume is an aural enigma. Frontman Britton Powell has been using the Hume name while performing in India, unleashing basement recordings, arranging full band compositions and more. Powell's lust for creativity is apparent in his sonically rich recordings. Hume fuses experimental prog-rock with folk-powered vocal stylings and happy, reverb soaked melodies.
In the Summer of 2011, Hume toured the East Coast with a four-piece line up consisting of guitar, bass and two drummers. Powell himself stood behind the bass and infront of a microphone, keeping the rhythmically complex songs grounded while the guitar player used a compendium of guitar pedals to invoke otherworldly sounds. The dual drummers used an intricate style while keeping every rhythm and part easily distinguishable.
Hume will be performing this Thursday, December 1st at the Crack Fox in downtown St. Louis. If their Summer tour is any indication of what's to come, concert goers are in for a loud dispelling of all things folk and experimental. The Top Grossing Films of 1984 and Flashlights will be joining Hume on this evening, augmenting a solid line up of thoughtful songwriting.
The Top Grossing Films of 1984 is the pet project of Rusty Anderson, whose soft vocals over simplistic melodies invoke nostalgia and whimsy. Flashlights is a new group featuring members of Grape Knee High and Jason LaChance of Person X. Expect an indie explosion reminiscent of the ninties.
