ARR-059 The Hunches - 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 distinguished itself by playing songs that seemingly lurched and careened with reckless abandon, but could make a left turn or come to a halt with a precision of equal force. Live, such bi-polarity was amplified, with The Hunches revealing a ferocity that couldn't hope to be captured on wax.

Recorded in 2002, just before The Hunches made their first full-length debut, many of these demos would wind up on that first album. 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 existance.
