The Mystery and the Hum, by Peter Himmelman

April 27, 2011

Himmelman's gifts for melody, lyrical poignancy and spiritual depth are
rare among singer-songwriters. He can also rock: "Motel Room in
Davenport" chugs like a freight train, while "Good Luck Charm" mixes
white-boy rapping and an anvil-heavy beat into a solid groove. Written
over a two-week period and recorded in three days, Hum sounds
more immediate and bracing than albums eked out over longer periods of
time. It's highly rewarding from the very first listen.
