My cut of the day - 'GUSH' by 'GUSH' was the first call and response between Tom Schraeder, Matt Nurse, and Stephanie Lee. Recorded in 3 hours it focuses on tracking our energy opposed to re-creating contrived musical expression that kills pure art. The title is in honor of a great human spirit, my uncle Gush, but creating this EP became much more to us than imagined. We continued to make dinner on Tuesdays and create material from here on out. There are many distractions in our life, but it's those who recognize it and fight it with pure energy. A great friend told me to "Free Your Mind", I have -- Have you?
