Ham1: It’s Only A Dream Unto Itself [mp3]


It’s difficult to describe the encapsulating power behind Ham1. The Athens-based band’s latest album, Let’s Go On And On And On With Ham 1, is perhaps most engrossing release in their half-decade career. “It’s Only A Dream Unto Itself” is one of the album’s top tracks, molding together a unique array of rock, folk, country and psychedelic for a sound that hints of wide influences from local friends Dark Meat, to the grunge master J. Mascis himself, to the epic genius John Cale. Read More »Ham1: It’s Only A Dream Unto Itself [mp3]

Elf Power

Elf Power: Elf Power [Album Review]

Elf Power is one of the great leftovers from the epic Elephant 6 collective — you know, bands like Of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Essex Green, Beulah, and Apples In Stereo to drop a few names.

Madeline Adams from Orange Twin Records stopped by Department Of Safety in Anacortes during the summer of 2008.

Ham1 [Feature Band]

Ham1 by Ben McCormick

My God… just how long have I had The Captain’s Table by Ham1 (MySpace) in my promo pile!? (That question warrants the exclamation point due to the excessive time it has spent there.) Let’s see, the album hit in November of 2007. You’ll likely need to subtract a few months due to the standard promo time. And yeah, that means I’ve had it for damn close to a year. And there’s simply no excuse—the album is quite decent. Read More »Ham1 [Feature Band]
