guest post / hue & hum christmas tunes

am welcoming caitlin to my stage here to promote their latest fantastic duo project. her husband plays music and she makes art. (i have her print hanging in the studio!) they teamed up and made a christmas album. it's has a good indie / artsy vibe and is just the right thing for your music maniac bestie. everyone has a friend obsessed with finding the coolest new sound out there. ours is named jeremy. he was the dj at our wedding. and still sends us mix cds every quarter. 

christmas album by hue & hum / check out this making-of music video.

Let me introduce myself, my husband, and our blog to you. I'm an artist, Hum's a guitarist. I met (and fell for) Hum when we were awkward teenagers in high school way back before I knew I wanted to be a hue and before he knew he wanted to be a hum. We got married a couple years after that, and now that we're grown-ups (well, not really) we create art and music for a living. I (Hue) am the pen and brush (literally) behind the Hue & Hum blog. I paint for a living and am an aspiring artist. Hum plays the electric guitar like nobody's business. He plays in the band Fictionist who, believe it or not, recently got signed to Atlantic Records!... and yes, we were very excited.

A couple of months ago Hum and I were playing a christmas carol called, "Were You There On that Christmas Night?", ever heard of it? It's one of our favorites. We had so much fun we thought, "Heck. We should record our own christmas album!" And so we did.

Hum oversaw the production of the album. He recorded guitars in our tiny bathroom at home, layered effects, and made sure everything sounded extra groovy. I oversaw the album art and production, and it would be easy to argue that I had a little too much fun. I felt like I was in 3rd grade again, I built a little diorama-like set up with fabric, cardboard, and ugly little plastic glittery snowflakes.
