4 stars Humus is a band that has been around for quite a while, since 1987 in fact. It started out as a one-man project founded by Jorge Beltran from Mexico and has released several albums during that time. The music can be classified as Psychedelic/Space Rock, and, as far as I know, is completely instrumental.

The album "Kush" was released on the 1st day of 2019. It is comprised of 19 tracks ranging from 2 minutes to 6 minutes long and has a total running time of an hour and 13 minutes, so you definitely get your moneys worth in music. But it is a bit more difficult to classify all of this music into one subgenre. While it is true that maybe around half of the tracks are heavy stoner style rock with complexities that put it into the prog category, there is a lot more than that to it. There are a lot of synthesizer and keyboard led instrumentals here too, many of them easily fitting into experimental territory, others with a nice funkified sound with catchy hooks like "Trick or Freak", "Poached Coach" and others that don't sound like stoner or space rock at all. Maybe you could consider them neo-psychedelic, but they might be too melodic for that. Others, however might fit into that category like "Halloweed" and "Uomauoma" as they are more experimental.

The thing is, for a space rock album, this sure has a lot of variation in styles and everything, but I can't think of any better genre to put them under, at least when it comes to this album. The one problem it has is, there is a lot of music here, and there is plenty that stands out, but it's a lot of new interesting music to pack into one album. So, even after a few listens, its hard to remember what is what here, and it is also difficult to sit through if you are concentrating on the music. Things start to get muddled together, and I think it would have served the group better to separate the tracks into two separate albums. But, the music is great, heavy and even fun at times. It is also well-produced. I really can't imagine giving this less than 4 stars, even though it can be a lot to take in all at once.
