Song of the Day: Kula Shaker – “Hush”

I’ve been going back and listening a bit to Kula Shaker recently, an underappreciated band that surfaced in the mid-90s with hits like the spacey “Tattva“, which pretty much nailed the psychedelic vibe they were going for. But there’s nothing spacey about this cover of Billy Joe Royal’s “Hush,” where they completely rock out and do the song great justice. The song of course was popularized by the Deep Purple version, which Kula Shaker emulates here and cranks it up a notch in the process. This version reached number 2 on the UK singles chart and number 19 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
