‘Deaf Cow Motel’ is their new EP, which boasts a clear and crisp production quality very few low budget releases can claim to feature. Opener ‘German Treasure Island’ kicks off with a building, energetic riff and punching drums before the tone relaxes for the verse. The second half of the track then picks up the pace again, with a huge, harmonious chorus and layers of post-rock guitars. The bass on ‘Running With Scissors’ gives the track a grumbling groove, and the quick-fire, almost off-kilter drumming provides a math-rock element. ‘God Made Colours’ continues in the same vein, minus the heavier, emo-riffing of the opening couplet.
Deaf Cow Motel will be released through Walnut Tree Records on 30th May 2011. Music Liberation urges fans of emo, post-hardcore, post-rock, math-rock, blah blah, to check them out.
