So... does this mean we're getting Hum?(Damn) This Desert Air news!
The time has come to pay tribute to one of the 90’s most influential yet
criminally overlooked bands, HUM. Pop Up Records, a independent label operating from deep
within the space rock scene is searching for bands that are heavily influenced by the iconic HUM to
round out the line-up for an official tribute album set for release in 2011. Hailing from Champaign-
Urbana, IL , HUM released several albums throughout the 90’s, both independently and with the
major label RCA. Their break out hit “Stars” catapulted the band into the limelight for a brief period,
but the band has always remained an underground phenomenon. Their music combines the
shimmering layered guitars of space rock with elements of grunge and post-punk for a timeless
sound that was unique and refreshing.
Several bands have already been confirmed for the HUM tribute album including: Funeral For A
Friend, The Esoteric, [Damn] This Desert Air, and Anakin
