Cover Review: Cosmic Cowgirls – Lace And Pretty Flowers

Band | Cosmic Cowgirls
Song | Lace And Pretty Flowers (cover)

Best cover of this song I’ve heard so far. The lead female vocals are amazing; soulful, deep and delicate. “The Story” (Brandi Carlisle) and Patty Griffin come to mind.

What if Massive Attack went a bit Witch House on us with a new serene female vocalist? Vinter EP is a dark mix between noise and sorrow. Surprisingly chill and relaxing.

Single Review: Old Kerry McGee – House Of The Rising Sun

Outback, old fashioned and eerie with a “old soul” feeling to both the lyrics and music. “Horse Head” (16 Horsepower) + “Las Cruces Jail” (Two Gallants) come to mind.

Motivational vibe and explicit lyrics with a somewhat “backwards” feel to the track. Intriguing mix. “Legend has it” (Run The Jewels) + “The Search” (NF) come to mind.

A retro/Nintendo game vibe permeates the music as well as the album artwork. Song like “I’ll Pretend” (Swamp Dogg, Guitar Shorty, Bon Iver) and “Intro” (The XX) come to mind.
