MP3 At 3PM: The Hush Now

thehushnow465Boston quintet the Hush Now has been receiving a lot of critical praise in the blogosphere in recent months, garnering numerous comparisons to bands like Built To Spill, Wilco, the Stone Roses and Teenage Fanclub. Not bad for a group that’s still unsigned. On February 16, the Hush Now’s sophomore release, Constellations, will be available as a free digital download (along with its debut, which is available here now). Check out Constellations‘┬ásecond single, “Contrails,” which is pure-pop heaven with boyish vocals and generous cymbal crashes.
