Two Cow Garage – “The Death of the Self-Preservation Society” Review

“You live for the bridges of this album”

Two-Cow-Garage-The-Death-of-the-Self-Preservation-SocietyFor all of you Cage the Elephant and Drive-By Truckers fans out there, this is an album that you shouldn’t pass up. A mishmash of messy sounds and clean-cut guitars, Two Cow Garage throws a fantastic record at us, and we can’t seem to get enough.

With an anthem-worthy sound, the three-man band put out a collection that includes some heavy guitars and noteworthy bass, but none of that distracts the listeners from the fantastic vocals and meaningful lyrics. The bridges and breakdowns of these songs are possibly the best parts of the tracks, and you find yourself waiting to hear what the lead singer has to say next.

Two Cow Garage describes their influences as Cheap Girls, Drag The River, Glossary, Grand Champeen, The Drams, The Old Sweethearts, Lucero and Centro-Matic. With diverse tracks throughout the album and great lyrics that you’ll be singing to yourself soon enough, you can’t help but pull something more from this record. Be sure to keep an ear out for the LP’s title track; it’s by far the most addicting.
