The HUMMS “Don’t Think About Death” single 45 restock

As the 10-year anniversary of the HUMMS’ debut LP “Lemonland” approaches, few were surprised to see a sudden restock of the original 45rpm single titled “Don’t Think About Death” b/w “Buttermilk/Uncle Sam Took My Baby Away”.

The single was initially released by Silver Spring, MD label “Arnold Records” in 2010 on black and special “glow in the dark” vinyl editions.

While the latter has completely sold out, the remaining black vinyl versions may be purchased over at the Gypsy Farm bandcamp.

Unconfirmed sources close to the band claim a new album is in the works with a possible release date sometime in 2020.  Of course, stay tuned into the Gypsy Farm network for all the latest updates and more.

 

 

 

Stream : The Ice Creams EP

The Ice Creams were formed as a recording project some ten years ago in November of 2008 as the “long forgotten bastard side-child” of Athens garage group The Humms and self proclaimed “Scooby Punk-rockers” are ecstatic to finally announce the first release since their limited edition single via Gumball Machine Records.

The long awaited extended player is comprised of 6-songs making up the self titled record [The Ice Creams EP]

“Here’s a newly posted video from a group called The Ice Creams, for a little ditty titled ‘Everyone’s Got a Skeleton.’ The band, which features Zeke Sayer and Matthew Garrison of local band The Humms as well as drummer Stephen Findley, plays a slightly more saccharine version of The Humms’ earworm-y garage-punk, impossibly catchy and lean as white meat.” – Gabe Vodicka – Flagpole magazine

The Ice Creams EP drops on November 13th via Gypsy Farm Records but you can pre-order and stream the EP now in it’s entirety below via bandcamp.
