Release Date:06/17/2016;Notes:Limited 180 gram colored vinyl LP pressing housed in a matte finish gatefold sleeve. Hum's sonic universe is a solipsistic world that exists on it's own terms, a maelstrom of sensations and colors, a thick metallic vortex of fuzztoned guitars with a silent core at the center like the eye of a hurricane - equal parts homegrown and high-tech. Hum serves up a cacophony of overlapping harmonics and dense shards of electric guitars providing a counterpoint to Matt Talbott's reflective tales. You'd Prefer An Astronaut is the Champaign, IL post-hardcore group's third studio album. The 9-song set was first released in 1995 by RCA Records and serves as the band's major label debut following the independently issued Fillet Show (1991) and Electra 2000 (1993). The album hit the No. 1 slot on Billboard's Heatseekers chart thanks to the breakout lead single, "Stars" which exploded on radio, leading to subsequent tours with The Smashing Pumpkins and Bush.;Track List:1. Little Dipper;2. The Pod;3. Stars;4. Suicide Machine;5. The Very Old Man;6. Why I Like the Robins;7. I'd Like Your Hair Long;8. I Hate It Too;9. Songs of Farewell and Departure
