I've been listening to Inlets constantly for 3 weeks now. Absolutely love Hum. Can't wait to check out their older stuff now. This album definitely has it's own identity, but for the sake of reference - imagine ISIS released Panopticon in the early 90s. Inlets releases in '94 as the optimal ripple of that album's influence. I say this only as a fun idea of their sound, from my perspective.
Hum - Inlets is an all time great for me, already. Brian Rossini
This album means a lot to me. It has been a comfort for me since the band was releasing singles from it onto Spotify. The full album was released soon after I moved far away from the US for a time, and I would listen to it often to remind myself of home. Even after returning home, it provides endless comfort. I'm so glad to see so many "Simulation Swarm" fans on here; I love the song's poetry and it's genuinely the most comforting song I've ever heard!
A cozy folksy ride. Every track shines. someonescopine
