Formed in Dallas, TX in 2000, The Cush features sympathetic songwriting armed with vintage tape delays and a batch of psych-pop mini suites.

Their fourth longplayer –"Transcendental Heatwave" – got all of the narcotic ear candy we've come to expect from a Cush record. This is a phenomenal record from one of Texas' all-time great bands.

"The Cush is Texas psych at its best." — Fort Worth Weekly

"A reverb-drenched psychedelic tapestry that keeps revealing secrets on repeated listenings." — Northeast Performer

"..trance-inducing experimental tunes that don't fade into the background." — Nylon Magazine

"It's hard to think of a local band, past or present, more highly regarded than The Cush" – Seven Days
