HUNCHES, THE - Same New Thing LP
The Hunches surfaced in the waking years of this century to hit a nerve
that desperately needed hitting. Playing a cacophonic, gritty kind of
rock & roll, they were an antithesis to the stylized version of
so-called garage rock that had come into favor. The Portland four-piece
released three full-lengths and an assortment of singles on labels like
In the Red before calling it a day in 2009. Now, Almost Ready Records,
who released an album’s worth of demos in 2016, is releasing a second
full volume of recordings heretofore unheard. Recorded in 2002, many of
these demos would wind up on their first album, Yes No. Shut It.
Here, though, cuts like “Explosion” and “Confusion” are less overblown,
with the nuances of The Hunches’ attack revealed. Meanwhile, the new
songs show that the band had more solid material than one album could
contain. Think of these recordings as ground zero, as they laid the
foundation for The Hunches’ all too brief, but amazing existence.
