New Single From Cowgill

About a month ago we here at QNYC were hipped to Cowgill from the Boston area when their song "Plans" made an inbox appearance.  Well, we're happy that they've presented a follow-up single titled "Extra Gravity" which you can grab at the bottom of the post.  The song is from their debut release, Side One of Planted which is being released on May 17.  For those of you in or near Cambridge, MA, they're having a record release show at The Middle East Upstairs on the 17th as well.  Doors are at 7PM and it'll cost your $8.

This six-piece group has been breaking new ground in the music scene - their first single even drew comparisons to Wilco on - no small feat!  COWGILL’s unique blend of indie rock and folk music takes on many forms - from 60s rock to newgrass - and none are spared on their first-ever studio release, Side One of Planted, out next month.  Come watch the band nimbly weave these genres together at their hometown CD release show at Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA on May 17th.

COWGILL is Paul Cowgill (vocals, acoustic guitar), Mike Truskowski (piano, backup vocals, trombone), Dan Weissman (mandolin, backup vocals, trumpet), Leeann Hackett (violin), Ryan Rivers (bass guitar) and their newest member, Joe Pess (drums). The band formed in June of 2011 and has been steadily winning over the hearts and ears of fans ever since.
