So Cow - Bisignis (Dandy Boy) Cassette
The seventh album from Galway, Ireland's So Cow, "Bisignis" was recorded in the shed of a rented house in Belclare. It was recorded a few weeks into Ireland’s lockdown #3, already considered the least fun lockdown by some distance. It was written and recorded quickly, with the focus being on making direct, unfussy songs. It was recorded and mixed in 2 or 3 days, in an acoustically untreated shed full of parts for at least three different lawnmowers.
There are tunes about feeling bad about all the garbage future generations will have to sift through after death (boxes of phone chargers, bags of odd socks), the oddness of a crowd at a Martha Wainwright show, what being 38 is like, memories of playing actual shows in actual venues with an actual band, and the sequel to Barry Richardson in ‘Barry Two’. It’s a County Galway album.
