A long time favourite Two Cow Garage has a new album Brand New Flag out on Last Chance Records (USA) and soon on At The Helm Records (UK). I was a little bit disappointed with the previous one The Death of the Self Preservation Society, but I’m definitely back on board now and probably should revisit the previous one with my current set of ears (I might have been an ignorant feel then and in the end it’s just as great as this new one or Sweet Saint Me for example). Anyway, the new one is just brilliant. The lead track Let The Boys Be Girls is quite an anthem and it ruled my world a year ago. It still sounds absolutely wonderful and the rest of the album is also capable fullfilling the skyhigh expectations that were set by that first outtake.
Two Cow Garage is a hard working American band from Columbus, Ohio. It’s led buy Micah Schnabel and Shane Sweeney, but it’s not just their show. Two Cow Garage is a very tight 4-piece rock’n’roll band and I hope I get to see them live one day. I’m kind of keeping my hopes up that Frank Turner takes these guys with him on a Northern Europe tour and Two Cow Garage ends up playing in Finland. When it comes to songwriting, I’ve been a bit more of a Micah guy up until now. I’m still a huge Micah fan, but Shane is on damn good form on the new record and has reached the same level of brilliance as Micah. That’s why this feels like the best Two Cow Garage album yet. Both guys are on top of their game and the band blasts these gorgeous songs into my heart. Here’s a couple of fantastic tracks from the new and magnificent Two Cow Garage album Brand New Flag. I wanted to post like a half of the record, because there’s so many should-be hits on this one and I’m afraid I almost did do that. Sorry about that. This record is just too damn good and I got little carried away.
