Here’s a song for the nomad in all of us, courtesy of Hume, New York’s Barry. The band recently released its debut album, Yawnin’ in the Dawnin’, which I may still review down the road. But this video shows firsthand a folk-rock band worthy of further exploration; “Carnival(e)” is one of those tracks which will stick in your head far longer than you spent listening to it.
And the music’s being made in the true DIY aesthetic, by a band led by Ben Barry, who also happens to handle press for the band’s record label, 100% Records. They’re building a name for themselves the right way, by getting out there and touring the music, letting fans decide what rocks. And trust me, readers, this band’s got music which rocks. You may know next to nothing about them when you first listen, but by God you’ll want to call yourself a fan by the time you’re done!
