Listening to the smooth vocal melodies and harmonies of “The Vigilant Ones” by the Cush is like floating in space. Inspired by vintage tape delays and psych/pop mini-suites, the husband-and-wife duo of Burette and Gabrielle Douglas formed in Dallas in 2000. The Cush is now based in Burlington, Vt., where the band completed its self-released third album, Between The Leaves. “The Vigilant Ones” is a solid representation of the Cush’s raw but well-tuned talent.
