Pygmy Lush (sometimes spelled as one word) is a band from Sterling, Virginia formed by ex-Pg. 99 members Mike and Chris Taylor and Johnny Ward. Other members include Mike Widman and Eric Kane, and previous associated acts include Malady, Mannequin, and Hissing Choir, amongst many others.
In 2007, they released an album of previously and newly recorded material on Robotic Empire entitled Bitter River. The songs alternate between two general styles, noise punk and acoustic folk, described by one reviewer as "ramshackle trashy punk rave-ups between beer-soaked bouts of twisted folk."
In June 2008, they released their second album, Mount Hope, which was recorded by Kurt Ballou (converge, who has contributed to most of their releases) of Godcity Studio and released on Lovitt Records. This album consisted entirely of quieter, folk style songs. Various reviewers described the album as a "metamorphosis" and that the band "has grown up and into a new sound... leav[ing] hardcore behind" to describe the stylistic evolution of the band.
