I recently got an email from Daniel Andersson of the Swedish band State Cows about their new eponymous album. It’s terrific – I’ve been playing it for days now. “State Cows” is an anagram of “West Coast,” and if you dig the Westcoast sound – think Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, Michael Franks, or Toto – you’ll dig these guys. Some samples, courtesy of YouTube: “Lost in a Mind Game,” “New York Town,” “Painting a Picture,” and “Looney Gunman.” Break out the Cuervo Gold – leave aside the fine Colombian – and give a listen.
