The ‘hum’ is an occurrence that takes place in your eardrums after you listen to bands like thisÂ at maximum volume. Â In 2013, HookwormsÂ signed to Domino Records and proceeded to kick down the f-ing doors with the fiery psych onslaught ofÂ Pearl Mystic. Â Now, a mere year and a half later, Hookworms is back to lay waste toÂ your headsÂ and your wallets. Â Don’t bother putting your doors back on their hinges. Â This one is just as much of a scorcher.
On their first singleÂ 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. Â His screams surf aÂ wave of organ drones and guitar distortion, churning in a wall of noise until it peaks in feedback. Â If you can imagine the soundÂ ofÂ a 747 nosediving straight into a volcano, you’ve got the essence of Hookworms. Â This is psychedelic music with bloody knuckles.
