In recent years THE HUSH NOW -- Boston’s finest purveyors of Halloween greetings spawned from the depths of their spooky lounge of rock -- have done everything from fleeing from the charm of Mephistopheles to dancing with the midnight ghosts of Dudley town. While they're in the studio prepping a new record, the follow-up to last year's Memos, the Hush Now kick off our Playlist of Evil with “The Flapper,” a stylish spin around a depraved soul’s dark carnival of desire.
The local psychedelia and garage rock enthusiasts at pRIMORDIAL sOUNDS have set October 30th as a release date for the debut full-length cassette by CREATUROS, Swampp Thingg. The first single and opening track "James Day's Milk Shake" spins
two-and-a-half minutes of classic surf rock drums, tripped-out guitars
and a rolling, echo-y hook, all wrapped up by the trustworthy sound of
some scuzzy tape hiss.
