Boston indie-rockers The Hush Now just released an EP called Shiver Me Timbers that is pretty tight. I like the immediacy of their playing; they indeed rock, seemingly know how to write some pretty infectious tunes and lead singer Noel Kelly sounds a little bit like Morrissey in that Kelly sings sort of “up there.” The Hush Now ain’t reinventing indie-pop, but what they’re doing sure is great on this EP and they’ve got a sound , damn it, which is a lot more I can say for the hundreds I’ve heard all doing this same sort of thing. Like Ra Ra Riot or The Temper Trap, The Hush Now are mining some pretty cool pop songs.
