iTunes Editors’ Notes

The subtle interplay of texture and mood that's long been a Wintersleep hallmark is again in evidence on Hello Hum. Loel Campbell’s bashing (but never excessive) drum work remains at the heart of things, grounding the band’s intriguing mix of aggressive rock guitars and atmospheric techno-pop synths. Hello Hum doesn’t compromise Wintersleep’s eclecticism, but it does refine it in appealing ways. Lead singer Paul Murphy is still a vivid yet elusive vocal presence, giving the songs cool elegance and ineffable yearning. “Resuscitate,” “Rapture,” “In Came the Flood," and similar tunes swirl and twitch rhythmically while the lyrics oscillate between sadness and wonder. The title track's fractured calypso beat, the Beach Boys-esque pop shimmer of “Someone, Somewhere,” and the reverb-drenched waltz time of “Smoke” will keep listeners pleasantly off-balance. While Murphy still prefers mystery to revelation, the wistful “Nothing Is Anything (Without You)” comes teasingly close to an openhearted love song.

What Happened?

Multiple tracks sound very over done, like they tried to jam as many instruments into one song as possible, others sound as if they have been inspired by techno. I'm not sure what direction they are going in but based on what I hear it is not a good one. I know every band must grow and develop but sadly I was truly looking forward to this album and now I am very disappointed.

Underwhelmed

The album isn't bad, but it isn't great either. What happened to making songs like "Orca" and Dead Letter and the Infinite Yes"??

eh

i will always love this band and anything they release, and things change and bands grow, but im going to be "one of those people" and say i like the "old" wintersleep better..
