Two Cow Garage, Brixton Windmill

Previous to this weekend I'd not known too much of Two Cow Garage which given their relationship to Cory Branan, Jon Snodgrass, Austin Lucas, Drag The River (a group of artists I'm a fan of) I'm ashamed to admit. Although through the 'artist radio' feature on LastFM I'd unknowingly heard a few of their tracks previously which gave a nice sense of familiarity when I saw them play at the Windmill, Brixton on Sunday evening.

Despite not knowing too many of the songs Two Cow Garage were instantly listenable, sounding somewhere between (post D-Generation/Fine Art Of Self Destruction) Jesse Malin and early Gaslight Anthem – a good mix of edgy, punk influenced, sing-along-to, alt-country anthems.

On what was a Bank Holiday Sunday evening there was a passionate crowd out in force to see the band from Ohio who played a lengthy set covering tracks across their five albums. As a first time listener there were a number of stand out tracks including 'Sally, I've Been Shot, 'Lydia', 'What Dying Is For', and my favourite track of the evening, the power cut induced acoustic, 'Jackson, Don't You Worry'.

If you get a chance to see them play live then I'd highly recommend it, whatever your taste they play the kind of music that you can't help but drink and have a good time to.
