Discovery II: HM-12 - No Fishin

I came across HM-12's music after looking over Kemistry Gem's Soundcloud page. It's a well hidden project without social media pages - minus a YouTube channel under the title Haunted Condo Records which is pretty non-existent and a well updated Soundcloud. HM-12 seem to be the anti to everything, everything... I get a strong feeling they're adverse to recognition, acclaim, attention, or pretty much anything in a positive light. 

HM-12 have plenty of songs, and are releasing them fast, without too much production; if any production at all. On "No Fishin" HM-12 appear more rock centric as opposed to the noise / experimental rock of their nature on the majority of their Soundcloud tracks. I get the sense they're not too serious about themselves, with these releases being scripted, but in a comedic sense - "No Fishin" doesn't seem to be one of these. The combination of slapped bass, duel male/female vocals and a pretty 90s indie rock feel give HM-12 a Yo La Tengo sound unintentionally. Their material is interesting to say the least and they shouldn't be afraid of being heard or exposed - they play for fun, but that fun is enjoyed by listeners too. It will be interesting to see where their path takes them, I’ll certainly be keeping an eye out.

  1. I thought I would try something more classy and vintage looking from thePanerai watches for sale collection this time. Something you could gift your father for his birthday or for some anniversary. I have settled for the Replica Panerai watchesas I think it has just the right amount of simplicity and charm to make any older man proud.It is a minimalist looking watch but still has a lot going on for it. Its charm is quite subtle and it would take a keen and experienced eye to discern just how marvelous this Replica Panerai Watches is. Replica Panerai Watches It looks like something passed down from an older generation. There are a number of wholesale designer Valentino handbags and purses for sale today that can give you the quality of a top fashion bag but at much less of a price than the original piece costs.
