Hem - Funnel Cloud Review

by Sherrill Fulghum

While this New York band uses instruments normally associated with country music like the mandolin, dobro, pedal bass, and fiddle; they also employ the use of less traditional instruments like the celeste, glockenspiel (bells), harp, and some beautiful harmonies to create their sound. Hem has been called a country or American music band and while some of their songs have a country fell about them; Hem is better classified as an American version of Clannad or New Age with a touch of Nashville.

Hem's newest release "Funnel Cloud" is the band's fourth album in seven years. The band took their name from one of their songs; the original title for the song "Lazy Eyes" was "Hem".

"Funnel Cloud" is a collection of 14 songs beautifully crafted with incredible melodies and wonderful harmonies. It is the perfect album to unwind at the end of a hard day or to just chill out any time.
