Hemmingbirds – Death Wave

Hemmingbirds – Death Wave

The Chicago-based Hemmingbirds’ latest album, “Death Wave”, can best be described as a fusion of new age, pop, folk and indie, with a little rock tossed in for good measure.

Founded by singer/songwriter Yoo Soo Kim, Hemmingbirds filled out their sound when they added enough members to create a five-man band. The band tours extensively and has grown very popular with locals.

Death Wave” is a very interesting album as it incorporates many different styles. This is the second album I’ve reviewed today which does just that, and much like the other, this one does it very well, thanks in large part to Yoo Soo Kim’s unique style and voice.

Whether you’re listening to the folksy “In The Event of Failure” or the indie “Slippery Slope” with its edgy guitar, each song has something different to offer. Each works together though, ramping up as you progress through the album.

You can pick up the CD from their site at hemmingbirds.com.
