Shit The Cow caught my attention several years ago and to be honest, it was the moniker that created curiosity as well as it gave me a smile. After having pressed the ‘Start’-button the band name was still fun but what counts more is the music and what I got to hear sounded pretty good. All that happened back in August 2013 after the release of the second EP ‘Salt of the Earth’.
Shit The Cow releases mainly EPs with ‘Cavelord’ and ‘Stone Ghost’ that could be s as longplayers too. Also, a pandemic couldn’t stop the guys from working on a new release, sticking to the one year release pattern. ‘And Dance’ is the title of the newest offer, an EP that comes with four new songs.
The pumping ‘Puppetman’ leads things off. It’s a very groove-driven track and since the guys added some female vocals here and there, the result sound even more exciting. Punk, rock, fuzz and garage rock, all blends into each other and defines the sound of Shit The Cow. The punk influences become obvious via tunes like ‘1995’, a track also equipped with a cool melody. The roaring ‘Through the Bedrock’ is an energizer with heavily downtuned guitars before the EP ends with ‘National Schaffer’, an hypnotic track with a punk attitude.
Shit The Cow never disappointed, stayed true to their sound and at the same times give each release a bit of an own twist. Art and music demand freedom, allowing musicians to follow their heart and not the Dollar. Shit The Cow is such a band that create music they want to play and not surprising, it is cool stuff.
