With all the music links I receive via email or FB messenger (Please stop messaging me on the weekends. I’m not going to review you at 3 a.m. on Sunday.), it’s exciting to hear a band doing new shit.

Fronted by John C. Morgan, who's played in Alamo City acts including indie BBs Sioux and Fox soulful pop-rock act Booty Feet, the recently formed Quiet Hours just released their debut, an eponymously named EP, and it’s nothing short of dope-as-fuck.

Which is sort of funny, because of how much of a throwback sound the band has.

Mix in the nonchalant vocal aesthetics of Elliot Smith, early ’90s indie alt-rock in the vein of Red House Painters and Pavement, plus a shot modern indie rock sensibility, and Quiet Hours pours out a cocktail that's refreshingly different from the current lo-fi, bedroom-pop the Alamo City seems to be producing of late.

Not only are there enough poppy vibes for the four-track EP to be appealing to just about anybody, Morgan’s lyrics and chord progressions really draw the listener in and take them on a journey to a time that feels vaguely like 1993.

The EP is on Spotify and available for purchase at
