Long-time correspondent and GF recording artist, Garett Hatch (Mother The Car, Nate & The Nightmares, Ancient Ethel) delighted us earlier this year with the sudden release of his first solo album, “Place Without a Name” conceived, written and recorded while under quarantine in Asheville.

“Hatch’s first official solo effort, titled “Place Without A Name” showcases a range of different styles and features the piano-wizardry of Mark Plemmons among several other musical guests. The album is set to be an enjoyable experience for the listener.” –Plez Jay
Then, Hatch surprised everyone with an immediate follow up, titled “Home” and it’s packed with supreme musical guests Annie Leeth, Casey Trivett and Stephen Britt, featuring artwork by Michelle Kaiser.
Garett Hatch’s “Home” is due out Oct 20th, stream and share the album via bandcamp:
In other GF news, today marks the official release of The Humms‘ long-awaited sophomore album, titled “Vampire Hours”.
This new record comes a little later than a full decade from their 2010 international debut, “Lemonland”, released on Bachelor Records and Odd Box.
“Grim motor-psycho music that goes from growling Steppenwolf jams to delightfully strange jazz/krautrock diversions.”
— Joseph Keyes, Bandcamp (New & Notable)
“Starting out with a suggestion of Merseybeat and then destabilizing the relation as it goes along, but keeping the movement of the harmony coherent.”
— Kevin Dunn (co-producer; The B-52s, Pylon)
“There are easygoing folk-rock elements mingling with what sound like diffusions from desert ghost-town saloon shadow figures engaged in a séance.”
— Stomp & Stammer magazine
