So Cow @ Bruar Falls
So Cow

If you missed Ireland's So Cow when he toured last summer, he's coming back in February for a six week North American tour, including two stops in New York: Feb 13 at Market Hotel with Grooms and Frankie & the Outs, and Feb 14 at Cake Shop. He'll also be playing SXSW in March and should have a new album out before that. If you haven't heard last year's self-titled release on Tic Tac Totally, you should definitely seek it out. It's a real treat. While you're waiting for the new record, you can download an EP of covers, including songs by The Go-Betweens, Tall Dwarves, The Soft Boys, Shonen Knife and more (above).

We recently spoke with Grooms in our end of the year inteview series (Frankie too).
