Pop Up Records has announced that they have begun work on a tribute to influential 90s era "space rock" outfit, Hum. Hailing from Champaign-Urbana, IL, the band released several albums throughout the 90's, both independently and with the major label RCA. Their breakout hit "Stars" catapulted the band into the limelight for a brief period, but the band largely remained an underground favorite.
Several bands have already been confirmed for the HUM tribute album including: Funeral For A Friend, The Esoteric, (Damn) This Desert Air, and Anakin. The album will be presented by a team of like minded individuals including: Pop Up Records, ExplodingInSound.com, escapingtheordinary.net, decoymusic.com Chancellor Design, and HOUSEWITHOUTWALLS Design. It is expected in 2011.
