iTunes Review

The release of the Hunches’ third album Exit Dreams in early 2009 came with the news that the Portland, Oregon group was about to disband. That’s a shame, because this garage-rock combo achieves a grimy sort of excellence in these crude but not ungracious tracks. The Hunches suck the vital juices out of the fabled Nuggets compilations and spew them back with punkish glee. “Actors,” “From This Window,” and “Not Invented” trudge with inebriated menace, allowing singer Hart Gledhill room to rant at humanity. Note-gargling guitars and Neanderthal-style drumming lend “Deaf Ambitions” and “Street Sweeper” a mind-frying psychedelic aroma. Glendhill and his cohorts flail about joyfully during manic exercises like “Carnival Debris” and “Your Sick Blooms,” and on “Swim Hole” they skirt the edge of acceptable power-pop, though sheer weirdness keeps them from falling in. In its own shambolic way, Exit Dreams seems like the work of committed rock scholars who know all the moves of semi-forgotten ‘60s no-hit wonders. But it also sounds like the unfettered eruption of maladjusted outsiders with no goal except to flip off the world. If the Hunches had to exit from the scene, this was the way to go.

Your all going to die

Best album ever made

One Star? Wow...

I don't understand how you can trash on this album when you clearly have not listened to it. Two of you simply wrote "no" and the other one wrote "what a fail". If you don't have a reason for writing a bad review then don't post it. With that said, Chris Gunn has created some of the greatest guitar sounds on this album that have come out of punk in the past decade. The songs are all incredibly well written and the sound varies from song to song yet can hold the listener's attention (unless you're going through preadolescence and enjoying writing one word reviews of albums you haven't heard in their entirety). Advice: don't listen to 30 second samples of any of these songs. They do this album no justice (which is the case with most albums on itunes). Listen to this album from beginning to end and then pass judgement. If you don't like it then how about fully articulating that. Until then listening to the album might help.

The Antidote for trendy music

I don't know where these guys are from, but it has to be a garage located near some psychedelic watering hole of all the old greats like Rory Erickson et. al.. This stuff just cranks, it's pure, unfiltered creativity, some parts punk, overall pure brilliance totally devoid of the current scene riders or any of that namby pamby iilk. Fantastic.


Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Specializing in epochal rock & roll noise in the grand tradition of the Velvet Underground, the Jesus & Mary Chain, and a guitar and amp being pushed down a flight of stairs while cranked up to ten, the Hunches were a band from Portland, Oregon who set new standards for energetic cacophony during their run in the 2000s. Guitarist Chris Gunn and lead vocalist Hart Gledhill first met when they were on the same little league team, and the two began making music together when they were in eighth grade....
