Jam of the Day | The Hush Now - Arkansas

I know that you feel alone
But haven’t we seen this all before

I like songs that make me feel less alone in the world. It's one of the best things about music, really, and this plinking, guitar-fuzzed anthem from Boston's The Hush Now makes me feel less alone. It echoes and shudders through the verses, rattles and hums through the choruses, and feels familiar and new all at once. It's sad and lonely and makes me feel like I'm not the only one in the world who's sad and lonely.

It's probably pretty depressing that something that's sad and lonely makes me feel less alone, but that's the beauty of music: it makes all of us realize that we're not that alone.
