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.
(No pretentious pop music analysis this time, sorry – for that, see my earlier posts on Steely Dan, Lady Gaga, Thelonious Monk, and jazz and modern culture more generally.)
Now purchased on iTunes. These guys have the sound totally down.ReplyDelete
