Shit The Cow – Volume/Cow

Shit The Cow – Volume/Cow
Self released – 2012
Rock, Garage, Punk, Stoner
Rated: ****

For a band that reminds of Hellacopters, Wall of Voodoo, Dandy Warhols, Danko Jones, Queens of The Stone Age, Velvet Underground, Joy Division and many more they’ve got a eerie distinct and consistent sound. And even though the band got started many a year ago and restarted as a duo in 2005, they’ve only recently released their first official EP. The four tracks on their first EP Volume/Cow all sound like Shit The Cow; a Swedish multi-colored and multi-layered quilt of rock. They combine all kinds of alternative rock sounds and even some new wave punk and industrial to distill their very own blend. And the trio excels in making it catchy, very accessible and even sound familiar without every turning into a copycat. For a fleeting moment you feel the songs become stale and old very quickly; but then you start recognizing it for its genius quality. It nestles in your brain and hooks you like some all to familiar novocaine...
