Mod-A-Day: The Hush Puppies

The Hushuppies -- the french garage rock band, not the US southern rock Poutfit -- since 2004 have been producing a wild and wooly sounding garage rock that is at the same time sharp and polished. Heavily influence by sixties freakbeat and psychadelia, The Hush Puppies nevertheless are not a revival act, or all that derivative of the sixties sound. Their music is modern garage rock that is clearly indebted to these past musical genres, but not overwhelmed by them. The song here, "Hot Shot", is from their second album, 2007's Silence is Golden.
