I know alla y'all are suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper thrilled about FOB, and you know, good for you! I've enjoyed them as characters for a long time, and I'm glad you will all get to be happy.


BUT!


BUT!


The Hush Sound is back together and clearly that is the veryveryvery BEST of all possible news ever in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD.

I've already squeed all over Twitter about the NEW ALBUM and the TOURING and the COMING TO UTAH, but! I wanted to share a bit of my evening with you, dear LJ. Mostly bc explaining the cast of characters alone would use up like, four tweets.


Lady 1's sister-in-law promised to go with me to the Hushies because she UNDERSTANDS MUSICAL OBSESSION like NOBODY ELSE I KNOW(she and I click on all kinds of super awesome mutual squealish levels) and she promised not to mock me if I cry. (SPOILER: I WILL PROBABLY CRY. IF GRETA SINGS THE ARTIST I WILL DEFINITELY CRY.)

So I was confirming with her that she would keep the date open, because I need her, and her girlfriend spoke up: "Wait, The Hush Sound?"

ME: YOU KNOW THE HUSH SOUND?

HER: Really, I thought they were...?!?!?

ME: I KNEW I LIKED YOU FOR A REASON. Wanna come?



So yay, I need to buy another ticket to go see MY FAVORITE BAND EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD.


Sometimes life is really awesome, y'all.

alk;jf;ljadl;fjldsjflsdj THE HUSH SOUND \o/ I'm so glad you get to see them, though! Do we know if they're releasing a new single at some point down the line?
Lu (Not Your Average Retelling)elucreh on February 9th, 2013 02:09 pm (UTC)
They've been in the studio and they're releasing an album so I assume a single or two is forthcoming????

I drove six hours on a Friday night to see the reunited Hushies in Philly just before Thanksgiving, and it was SO WORTH IT. I adore them, and can't wait for new music and new tours and everything.

They are worth ANYTHING I love them so much

Last night's fangirl squee was just about the most amazing thing I'd ever witnessed. Seriously. :)

Do I need to buy my ticket still? My brain got lost in the mess of everything.

If you wanna join us I'd be THRILLED to have you!

WAIT WAIT I'M SO CONFUSED. ARE THE HUSHIES AND THE HUSH SOUND TWO DIFFERENT BANDS? PLEASE SEND HELP.
Lu (Not Your Average Retelling)elucreh on February 9th, 2013 01:55 pm (UTC)
Nooooo, no, they are the same! Never fear!
thaliathalialunacy on February 9th, 2013 02:01 pm (UTC)
omg then I actually know them. my ex-fiance burned me a disk of some of their stuff and although I haven't gotten to know it intimately I really really like a couple tracks. I FEEL SO COOL NOW. :B
Lu (Not Your Average Retelling)elucreh on February 9th, 2013 02:06 pm (UTC)
:DDDDDDDDDDDD

(They are also the original band of the Greta that I talk to you about essentially endlessly, lol)
thaliathalialunacy on February 9th, 2013 02:07 pm (UTC)
yeah i saw that... original meaning she's not involved anymore, or she's just flighty like all musicians and has eight other 'projects'?
Lu (Not Your Average Retelling)elucreh on February 9th, 2013 02:14 pm (UTC)
They started THS when they were in high school; they put together and toured for three albums, then took a "break" which everyone who loves them was terrified meant their label issues had DESTROYED THEM and we would NEVER HEAR FROM THEM AGAIN, and Greta went on to form a band of retro-summery-pop called Gold Motel. (I went to New York to hear them. YES I'M THAT CRAZY, but you knew that.) Gold Motel put out two albums but stayed mostly off-official-label; I like their music? But it's not my style as much as The Hush Sound's is, and Greta and Bob (of the Hushies) really balance each other well, I think.

Bob tried to be part of STAMPS for a while, although he hasn't been in a couple of years; Chris disappeared into the ether as far as I know; Darren drummed randomly with a lot of local bands and also was part of a band that called itself Debate Team. That band was not super successful. (...shockingly)
