Tuesday Tip-Off: Russian Cowboy

It’s been a long, long time since we’ve heard a slice of tasty cowpunk, a genre that saddles up and straddles the twang and imagery of outlaw country with a roots punk sound and attitude for a sound that is good, bad (to the bone) and ugly (like the face you make when you’re rocking out like nobody’s watching). Riding to the rescue to bring hope to these dusty old speakers is Bloomington, Indiana’s Russian Cowboy with their album A Slow Migration West. Simply put, this isn’t just a welcome new addition to the tradition set forth by bands like The Blasters and The Gun Club, but a release that stands shoulder to shoulder with the greats of the genre. Why are you still reading this? G’on get! Get on over to their Bandcamp page and grab a copy before we call the marshal on you!
