Low Hums
Low Hums
Low Hums are Jonas Haskins, Miles Panto, Bill Patton, Mike Bayer and Chris Early. They mostly live in the south side of Seattle. An area famous for it's industrialization and pollution, the boys have taken full advantage of the available infrastructure. And in so doing, have crafted and boiled down many nights of free form freakout into a concise 45 minutes of pure guava, or as it appears in the vinyl form, pure bolivian emeralds. But this isn't just music/magic for you Zappa heads, there are some real pop gems in there.
It was somewhere said, that after a horrible, sold out SXSW appearance gone totally wrong, the band regrouped, and decided that they should write songs like this. The music of Low Hums, somewhere out there in the oceans of psychedelic // rock and roll // pop // twang. Whatever that means to you. Usually 'rock and roll' works just fine.
Started in 2009, Low Hums have to date released two full length LP's. The second LP appropriately titled 'Charm'. Is out on the now R.I.P FIN Records, August 15th 2014. (( remember the bolivian emeralds right?? )).
Low Hums have toured several times around the West, Southwest, Midwest ( and maybe more ) and have been blessed to share a stage on occasion with the likes of Earth, Mt. Eerie, Kinski, Six Organs of Admittance, The Entrance Band, Rose Windows, Zoe Muth and the Lost High Rollers, Chelsea Wolfe, Master Musicians of Bukkake, Jesse Sykes, rowdy country bands, Midday Veil, Diminished Men .. Played everywhere from campfires, festivals, clubs, pubs, garages, parking lots, churches, parties, bbq's, big weird buildings, beaches, high deserts, burrito shops, and yes, even down town LA.

KEXP ALBUM REVIEW:
GravelRoad: Psychedelta (Knick Knack)
Since the release of their last album (2008's Shot The Devil), this Seattle band has toured and recorded two albums with primal Mississippi blues artist T-Model Ford. Some of his raw energy might've rubbed off on them because they're now back with their third and strongest album to date, a hard-driving set of raw, gritty blues-rock steeped in Mississippi hill country blues, featuring a variety of rocked-up deep, primal blues songs combining rumbling electric guitar riffs and some sweet slide along with hypnotic rhythms and husky vocals. 3/30/2012 -Don Yates
