Leeds’ Cowtown seem a nastier proposition here than on their previous album ‘Dudes Vs Bad Dudes’. Buzzing new-wave tunes are at a premium on first few listens and instead we get pretty much the most filthy guitar sound known to man, absolutely disgusting. On ‘Castleman’ those guitars are fitted with an extremely nifty spring reverb which helps everything with that ’50s raawwk sound. More the Cramps and Deep Purple than the B52s and Devo.
Overleaf ‘Castle Greyscale’ has a the same guitar fx with added burbling synth with a gritty and grimy back of a filthy pub sound. Have they been listening to The Amazing Snakeheads? Pulverising drumming then singlehandedly whips it up into a blizzard of sonic maelstrom. I like this. I do. I do.
