Wintersleep: Hello Hum


This is a great return for Canadian rockers- Wintersleep. With a little help from world renowned producer Dave Fridmann, Hello Hum is a breath of fresh air for these seasoned touring veterans. The record opens up with a song being pieced together in to a chanting lyrical phrase- 'I can only find you if you are looking for me' while the drum patterns pan from left to right, till the song and tone of the album comes together in full force. Aside from the stellar production quality, the band mixes all of their influences from U2 to Rush to acoustic folk songs, to good old fashioned indie-rock. This may be their best album to date.
