Interview: Bob Morris of The Hush Sound & Le Swish

by Nicole ScottMay 29, 2016

I got the pleasure in the past couple weeks to talk with Bob Morris, member of both The Hush Sound and Le Swish to talk about new releases and The Hush Sound’s upcoming ten-year anniversary tour for their sophomore album Like Vines.

The tour begins this Tuesday, May 31st, in San Diego at Cashbah.

Nicole Scott: So Like Vines apparently has been out for about 1000 years, so I’ve heard. How does it feel to look back on it? Any weird emotions going back and revisiting it?

Bob Morris: I’m sure there will be. It just feels like a new tour. But when we play some of these songs that we haven’t really played live in a long time, or maybe some of them probably almost never, I’m sure it’ll be pretty strange. Like “Magnolia” and “Lion’s Roar,” I think we played those right at the beginning. I think on our second tour, which was with Panic! at the Disco, we had a thirty minute set and for some reason thought we could play thirteen songs.

NS: That’s very ambitious of you!

BM: Yeah, I mean we were “Well, each of these are about two and a half minutes long, so theoretically we could play thirteen if we go real fast!” And I think we played six songs, and then after that realized it’s really not about playing a ton of songs it’s about playing good stuff.

NS: My personal favorite thing about the album as a whole is this really cool [...]

Mac Miller’s “Best Day Ever” Mix to be Re-Released for 5th Anniversary

by Mary MenzemerMay 27, 2016

The release of “Best Day Ever” probably ignited many best days for Mac Miller, as it catapulted his career from indie rapper to household name. Initially released in 2011, “Best Day Ever” will be reissued as a remastered version on both CD and vinyl.

It must be noted too that the mixtape contains the single “Donald Trump”, which is appropriately coming back into our radar in lieu of the presidential election. Via Pigeons and Planes, Rostrum Records President Benjy Grinberg, told Billboard: “The album includes Mac’s biggest single to date, ‘Donald Trump,’ but that’s just a coincidence. We set the clearance into motion almost two years ago (well before Trump announced his presidential run)”. Listen to Best Day Ever below, and read more about Mac Miller HERE.
