The ‘hum’ is an occurrence that takes place in your eardrums after you listen to bands like this¬†at maximum volume. ¬†In 2013, Hookworms¬†signed to Domino Records and proceeded to kick down the f-ing doors with the fiery psych onslaught of¬†Pearl Mystic. ¬†Now, a mere year and a half later, Hookworms is back to lay waste to¬†your heads¬†and your wallets. ¬†Don’t bother putting your doors back on their hinges. ¬†This one is just as much of a scorcher.
On their first single¬†The Impasse, Singer Matt Johnson’s microphone appears to be inside his throat, and they’ve turned him up as high as it can go. ¬†His screams surf a¬†wave of organ drones and guitar distortion, churning in a wall of noise until it peaks in feedback. ¬†If you can imagine the sound¬†of¬†a 747 nosediving straight into a volcano, you’ve got the essence of Hookworms. ¬†This is psychedelic music with bloody knuckles.
