The Hush Now - CD release Sat 6th at Great Scott and free download

Two years after the release of their eponymous debut album (produced by David Newton of The Mighty Lemon Drops, straight out of the UK), Boston’s The Hush Now is back with a sophomore - though not sophomoric - effort that will definitely please those already familiar with their particular species of subdued rock.

For those who aren’t so familiar, a quick listen through their new album, Constellations, will be more than enough to bring you up to speed, with lead guitarist Adam Quane setting the rhythm and tone for each song with some sweetly simple guitar riffs before lead singer Noel Kelly even has a chance to come in with a breathy-but-firm vocalism that, although it may not be for everyone, will certainly satisfy, at the very least. Be sure to catch them live at Great Scott this Saturday to see them perform songs from their new album, and to wish them well before they take the stage at South- By-Southwest later this month.
