Continuing on in their ever-prolific and sensational run of releases, The Cowboys are back with five tracks of pure analog gold on “Lovers in Marble”. Recorded by the band in Cincinnati and mixed with John Hoffman (Vacation), this EP finds The Cowboys as cool and collected as ever, with Keith Harman’s driving piano lines and vocal range atop the mix. It’s quite the divine distillation of garage pop melody, (think ‘Loaded’ era VU, Walker Brothers, or Emitt Rhodes) given a sinister coating of The Kinks and Syd Barrett, curious production flourishes intact. The Cowboys have truly spent their quarantine days well, pairing brilliant pop compositions with some of the best instrumentation and recording quality across their ever-expanding discography. “Lovers in Marble” is a pivotal Cowboys release, perhaps their most accessible, but also most refined piece of work yet. A perfect sonic respite from the long, dark days of 2020.
