COWBOYS, THE: Lovers in Marble EP: CS

Mar 17, 2021

No longer the scrappy Nuggets by way of Killed By Death proto punk I had grown accustomed to, Bloomington Ind.’s The Cowboys have embraced some musical growth since I last listened to them. The song “Saintlike Said” sounds like it could have been on a comp from the ’80s alongside Echo And The Bunnymen or the Psychedelic Furs, and the title track has a Beatles “Penny Lane” grandiosity to it which I can appreciate even if I’m not too fond of The Fab Four. Six songs of perfectly crafted songwriting exhibiting the band’s musical maturity. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next. –Juan Espinosa (Feel It,,
