Hunter Dumped Us Here is a self-described “loud emo-indie rock band” from the Midwest. Formed in 2013, the band released I Understand in June 2016. “Cavendish” is the second single from that work. The quartet was “created for the sole purpose of helping friends, family, and strangers get through life together with the help of our music and shows,” vocalist Gabe Reasoner told HM.

Reasoner spoke more specifically about the song:

“It’s written about the challenges that come with being someone that intends to spread love and understanding through art, while trying to overcome the barriers and obstacles in the way. The video portrays those struggles in an extreme, (kind of) exaggerated way. It was shot this year with some of our closest friends and supporters.”

The music video was directed by Mayfield Creative.

If you dig what you hear, the album is available through the group’s Bandcamp, and you can stream it on all major services.

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
