So Cow

Galway, Ireland's So Cow start an extensive U.S. tour this week with three shows in Brooklyn: Thursday (5/7) at Bruar Falls, Friday (5/8) at Silent Barn, and Saturday (5/9) at Death by Audio. Basically one guy, Brian Kelly, on record, So Cow has self-released two full albums and a few EPs and singles since 2005, the best of which has been compiled onto a new 18-track, self-titled, vinyl-only album which came out about a month ago on Tic Tac Totally. It's all super-catchy, clever pop from start to finish, with one of the better-looking album sleeves I've seen in a while. Highly recommended. A couple MP3s are at the top of this post to give you an idea. Kelly toured the U.S. this time last year with a MP3 player as his backing band (including a stop at WFMU which you can still listen to) but for this tour, So Cow will be an actual three-piece band. All dates below...

"screw the Irish"

What do you have against them?

Posted by Anonymous | May 5, 2009 1:59 PM

i find the best way to deal with trolls is to ignore them, and then they go away.

Posted by sloweducation | May 5, 2009 3:11 PM

I will not be ignored!

I would like to propose not to hold back until you get enough money to buy different goods! You should take the mortgage loans or just short term loan and feel free
