Hush the Many

Hush the Many, Mind the Spawl
EP, Handspun Records dist by Cargo

We have quite a bit of background on this group in interviews and even a slice of a recent live gig on podcast.

On a recent tour they were, with the addition of a drummer, a five piece, while on this five track EP they are a four piece with interesting textures and a general spaciousness. Generally, the pieces develop slowly with voice, cello, and FX laden long guitar lines (plus guest violin on two tracks) taking you along on small, almost orchestral journeys.

In a way, it is modern chamber music: modern in its timbre and modern in its sensibilities. And "chamber" in its intimacy and historical connectiveness. (thunderfinger)
