Man Hurls Hedgehog Releases Debut Album May 4

Download this release in PDF format

 The brainchild of bassist and singer/songwriter Noah Baumeister, Santa Fe's Man Hurls Hedgehog play music that is energetic and aggressive, as well as progressive yet with some pop sensibility. Hints of Primus (heavy basslines and nasally vocals) with metallic guitars and snappy drumming give only a hint of what to expect, which is often the unexpected.  Octavio Ramos, The Examiner, 2010

Man Hurls Hedgehog is admittedly a young band, but I find myself humming its catchy jams for days afterward. I can only guess how the music will evolve, but I'm sure, once MHH nails down its style more solidly, the band will be one of the better punk-ish rock acts in town.        Alex DeVore, SF Reporter, 2010
