Running Through with the Sadness represents Hungry March Band's first full-length studio effort in over a decade, and their first pressed to vinyl. An explosion of irreverent energy and a veritable lesson in spastic instrumental dance music, it pulls from many familiar styles, referencing dub ("Swirling Spaceman"), NOLA funk ("Shimmy"), and first wave ska ("Whichawhicha"). The band also arranged a polyrhythmic tribute to the wassoulou music of the late singer/composer Coumba Sidibe with "Mali Mali." With all these styles in the mix, H.M.B. is a punk band at heart -- manic and mad in their interpretation of sound and life in New York City. They switch gears from the charm of a children's show to a twisted trip on acid at the drop of a hat. Running Through with the Sadness was meticulously produced over the course of years, indicating a forward step in the evolution of the radical street brass sound.
