Bumpin’ and Groovin’

My internet died today.
Before the resurrection, I checked my mailbox to be surprised by a CD.
My internet came back to life.
Now you get to check out the inbox friendly band Bump.

I was talking about Bonnaroo today with someone, which brought up memories of summer and jamming music. Well, right now it is pretty damp and gloomy outside, so I was relying on music to combat the negative effects of Mother Nature. You know.. That music you might listen to with the windows down on a summer day? Bump could easily become that type of music. When I put in Bump’s latest album, Incredible Consequence, I found myself in one of those Corona commercials on a white beach thinking… “Miles away from ordinary.” Perhaps that’s the best description for their music. A hodgepodge of jamming rock and psychedelic indie make their music a perfect blend of beach side bar meets a rock and roll festival meets (their hometown) Detroit Rock City.

Check out their MySpace and be ready for their debut album that releases on May 2!

Completely off topic to anything musically related, I found myself using the word “hodgepodge” in the above description. I’m not sure how many of you have seen the hilarious Honda Element commercials, but there is one with a platypus that cracks me up. As soon as I typed the word “hodgepodge”, I knew I had to expose you to this bit of humor.

Today I posted 9 covers (including one of those numerous wonderwall covers you mentioned on last post) thought you’d like to hear:

Nice! Glad to see bloggers are starting to take notice of Bump. While I don’t really think they are as “pyschedelic and jammy” as you describe, I do think they could be a serious indie vs. jam crossover.

Th playtpus one is good, but the crab is by far the best.
