fuses Hendrix/Kravitz/Mayfield stylings with a punk/funk-driven guitar edge akin to Neil Young, the Stooges and cult Detroit proto-punk trio Death, which was rocking the underground in the early ’70s.
What Were You Hoping For? is where Hunt really finds his groove. . . "Watching You Go Crazy Is Driving Me Insane" [our favorite] barrels along at incredible speed with a mighty crunch,

and Plum incorporates surrealistic poetry and ramshackle guitar noodlings.
The album’s lo-fi esthetics also work to Hunt’s advantage on ballads like the Isley Brothers-tinged "Moving Targets.
