Bughummer – Sweet Life

This post, and last Saturday’s post, are a sort of follow up to Lovitt Records putting up lots of archived material on bandcamp. On Saturday, we had the Swedish Dischord wannabes Division of Laura Lee. And just to show there is much more to check out, today we have Bughummer. Here is a quick synopsis from Lovitt Records:

Bughummer, a band from Savannah, Georgia, enjoyed a five-and-a-half year run from 1992 to 1998. Originally formed by guitarist Jon Proctor at the Savannah College of Art and Design as a quartet, the group underwent different line-up changes and settled with Proctor, guitarist Keeley Davis (Engine Down), and drummer Brian Lackey.

This is 90s math rock with intensity. Reminds me a bit of Drives Like Jehu in it’s more aggressive style. But it also has styles we are familiar with from Shipping News too. So if you like something that falls somewhere in between those two bands, you will do well with Bughummer. And if you like this plus the Division of Laura Lee post from Saturday, you may want to dig a little deeper into the Lovitt Records catalog. I know that I will.

And, for more on Bughummer, check out this pretty cool 1995 tour documentary.

Division of Laura Lee – Guess My Name

Hailing from Vänersborg, Sweden and more than a little influenced by Fugazi. Hard to complain about any of that.
