Album Notes
Gumshen began as Menthol James, a hard-rocking Seattle quartet who played several successful shows at the historic Rainbow club, and a well-received live performance on KBTC 91.3 FM. One year and a few demos later, the band became a trio and recorded the Menthol James EP, mixed by Glenn Lorbecki and mastered at Glenn Sound. This mid-2007 release was followed by positive reviews, describing the recording as “loud and raw…” and “breathtaking”.

Early in 2007, the band enlisted the help of veteran Seattle music producer/engineer Rich Hinklin (faculty member at The Art Institute of Seattle, Word of Mouth Productions, Reciprocal Recording), changed their name to Gumshen, and returned to the studio to record their next EP. The result was the diversely entertaining Stew, which was released in January 2008, and also received glowing, positive acclaim “…the latest group to catch our ears and make us take notice”.

During mid-2008, Gumshen was back to the studio with Hinklin again at the controls, and recorded their most recent EP, Super Buffet. Released January 2009, Super Buffet stretched the band’s music to include a mixture of 70’s- influenced pop and hard rock, and a heavy dose of 90’s power riffs, cool crooning and aggressive rap. “Heady and mature, Gumshen seem to be separating themselves from ever being pigeon-holed into any one musical genre…this disc will find itself living in my car for those days when I need something that both rocks and soothes.”
