Reviews of Kentucky Knife Fight's newest release, "Hush Hush"
"Hush Hush: Wherein the St. Louis-via-Edwardsville band marries its bluesy barroom blitzes with a cinematic scope. For its third full-length, the quintet remains clouded in cigarette smoke and dark-tinted glasses, but there's a touch of the auteur with how the album is assembled. There is plenty of Kentucky Knife Fight's trademark boogie and swagger alongside its more art-directed interludes...Hush Hush is the album that the band needed to make; it doesn't abandon Knife Fight's core sound but widens the lens with a greater focus on storytelling and mood setting."
- Christian Schaeffer for The Riverfront Times
"Every lyric, every lick on the guitar, and every single tattoo scattered throughout Kentucky Knife Fight screams about cutting the crap and getting down and dirty. Every song inspires to be wild and free (and sometimes a little bit naughty), and at the end of "Love the Lonely," I kind of want to be a vindictive bitch that steals souls and pours evil love potions everywhere. St. Louis NOW has the distinct pleasure of being the birthplace of Kentucky Knife Fight, who's musical genre is a melting pot of blues, rock, and sex."
- Kaylee Goins for KMNR
