Weirdly lumped in with the emo-loving teen scene by dint of their signing to Fueled by Ramen records, Illinois outfit the Hush Sound were far from your typical Hot Topic crowd-pleaser. Instead, they favored brassy boy/girl piano-led romps over pop-punk histrionics during their initial five-year run. On hiatus since 2009, in which time vocalist/keyboardist Greta Morgan launched excellent indie-pop outfit Gold Motel and vocalist/guitarist Bob Morris formed Stamps, the band is back together and working on new material for a fourth record set to hit sometime in 2013. With John Mark Nelson. All ages.
