Stereogum Recaps Hum's Weekend Performances At The A.V. Fest & More
"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 a 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 on lead singer Matt Talbott’s label/recording studio Earth Analog." Read on for photos and the full set lists from both Hum sets.
