CD Review 18: The Hush Now

Artist: The Hush Now
Album: Shiver me Starships
Label: self-released
Y’args: 1, 3, 5,
N’args: CLEAN

Genre: Rock – Pop
RIYL: My Bloody Valentine (circa Tremolo EP and Isn’t Anything)

The Hush Now played at SXSW this year as part of their tour to promote their previous release, Constellations (2010). Shortly after, the band headed back to the studio to record Shiver Me Starships, which they gave away for free online (yes! it’s still available at http://www.sixstarpromotion.com/hush-now-free-album-download/ and if you go to their website http://thehushnow.com/ you can download almost everything else they’ve every done) This album is upbeat, and at times sounds like a typical pop band. The band plans to do another tour to support this album before going back to the studio again to record another full-length album.
