CROSS-POLLINATION CXI - TUES SEP 12TH - 7:30-10 PM
KINETIC
HUMA

“Ladies and gentleman, I am proud to introduce you to Kinetic. Summery and shimmery like the best Pavement songs yet as fierce and jagged as Eric Bachman in Archers while tender on the inside like Evan Dando, Kinetic's Brendan has all the makings of a great rock and roll lead man - complete with a electrified stage presence that few Chapel Hill or Boston legends could have approached. This is pop with no pretense and no pain. They're songs filled with hope and beauty.” – Jasper Coolidge, jenyk/dot/com

“I’m happy to say they’ve really stepped up to the plate and hit one out of the ballpark (or rock club). The band’s sound has evolved into a dreamy wash of well-layered guitar riffs and soft-tease vocals.” – Village Voice

Huma was formed back in the cold harsh winter of 2003 by Brian and Jess, mostlyas a means of defeating the northern jersey duldrum known as suburbia. Originally an acoustic duo, they realized that sounds could be a lot more enjoyable if there were more to choose from, and keyboardist (also Brian's sister) Laura was added into the mix. Quickly offsetting the 'American Mall' scenery around them, lush atmospheres emerged as Brian and Jess honed their programming skills to create electronic blips and beats around Laura's synthesizer tones... that brings us to the Huma you have today. Out of the suburbs and into the city of New Brunswick where they are presently recording an album for Cult Hero Records, due to be released in the late spring of 2006. Pulling sounds from their influences like Broken Social Scene, Lali Puna, My Bloody Valentine, and Neil Young, Huma creates a delicate blend of electro-pop and ambient folk. a sound that is very much their own.
