Hum

The reemergence of the band Hum is that of lost astronauts, revisiting the Earth, after over 20 years of flight. Their latest (and possibly greatest ) effort, Inlet, is massive. This is an album that undulates between the hardest and most ethereal they’ve ever been.

The landing of this album has been met with a very warm welcome from fans. With the current restraints on live music performance still pending, I’d chalk Hum up to be one of the most anticipated bands to hit any stage in 2021.

In this album review Hazy Eye Music Media’s contributor Joseph Strand reviews Hum’s fifth studio album, Inlet, released on June 23, 2020. “This 8 song album is another opus from Talbott.” Continue reading for Joseph’s full review.

Le Butcherettes

If you are a die hard fan of Teri Gender Bender and Le Butcherettes you were not disappointed with this new EP. If you recently discovered the band since the album’s release on Valentine’s Day, you were likely struck by Gender Bender’s crooked arrow of love.

From the opening track “Wounds Belong To Me” featuring Teri on acoustic guitar, singing into what sounds like an old cassette recorder, to the album’s closing track “Boom” dropping an 808 alongside contorted lead lines and idiosyncratic beats, and variations of electronic rock songs in between, Don’t Bleed is an eclectic 7 song journey through love and femininity’s deeper shades via one of rock music’s most colorful female artists.

In this album (EP) review Hazy Eye Music Media’s contributor Joseph Strand reviews Le Butcherettes’ Don’t Bleed released on February 14, 2020. “A must for burning and broken hearts alike.” Continue reading for Joseph’s full review.

Chris Connelly

Hazy Eye Music Media is proud to announce the second interview in a series of interviews I’m currently conducting with some of my favorite artists. I’m stepping outside of my comfort zone and have begun picking the brains of some phenomenal musicians.

This time I, Andy Jillson, was fortunate enough to interview Chris Connelly. Chris Connelly is a Scottish-born musician and author who is widely known for his work with Ministry, Revolting Cocks, Pigface, and a other highly influence electro-industrial bands during the mid 1980’s and early 1990’s. He has since established himself as respected solo artist and singer-songwriter. To this day, Connelly continues to write new material and has released several poignant solo albums.

In 2008, Connelly published a memoir of his early years in the music industry titled, Concrete, Bulletproof, Invisible, and Fried: My Life As A Revolting Cock. The book is “superbly written, funny, irreverent, and a downright scary memoir” at times. I highly suggest you buy the book and take the trip. Chris Connelly is a unique artist with an interesting career/life. I have been listening to his music since I was about 13. Anyway, check it out!
