Cowgill’s Summer 2012 Tour by the Numbers
"...should have no problem finding favor with fans of the rootsier side of rock’s tracks." - MY OLD KENTUCKY BLOG
Cowgill - an eclectic, indie folk rock group hailing from Boston - released their debut, Side One of Planted, on May 17th, 2012. Recorded at Power Station New England - the near-perfect replica of Avatar Studios in Manhattan - the five tracks showcase an upbeat pop sensibility, a darker folk rock side, and creative song structures easily missed on the first listen. Cowgill nimbly hops genres several times throughout the record, occasionally even mid-song.
Phil Tortoroli of MP3.com refers to the album’s opener as "...harking closer to Wilco’s current discography with its lush arrangement of strings, acoustic guitars, and plodding drum lines." Funded largely through the generosity of their fans, friends, and family via Kickstarter, the tunes on Cowgill’s debut release will appeal to fans of Dr. Dog, The Head and the Heart, Radiohead, and The Decemberists alike.
