Bands and new music for fans of hum

Down/around

by Saucer Eyes

Saucer Eyes was born from a desire to marry delicate, dream-like melodies with heavy, sludgy guitars. Sonically drawing on influences like Smashing Pumpkins, Dinosaur Jr, MBV, Sleep and Electric Wizard, the band blends layers of reverb and delay with fuzz to create a dystopian-like wall-of-sound.

For fans of

Nerve

by Dutch

5 Piece band from Birmingham, England. Formed through friends and internet 'wanted' ads, via a mutual itch to throw ourselves into something cathartic and violent. Helping you face the monolithic gloom of existence with a glimmer of hope.

For fans of

Marathon Sprint

by Mummer

We're a three-person (wait... four! We finally added a bassist) emo/post-hardcore band from Lubbock, Texas. We've got a foot firmly in both camps, with influences from 90's/early 2000's emo and post-hardcore as well as noise rock like Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, and Archers of Loaf.

For fans of

Soul Attrition

Hey Punktastic, I'm releasing a solo project called Soul Attrition. The debut album, "Vashon Rain" integrates components of post-metal, grunge, sludge and alternative with a focus on pummeling riffs and haunting melodies in order to create an emotive and driving sound.
