Local Spotlight – Cowboys In Cardigans

 

On December 19th, 2014 Cowboys in Cardigans released the sudden and unexpected follow up to their debut Cockatoo; that follow up was called Platypus. Made possible in part by the generous funding of the City of Windsor’s Arts, Culture, and Heritage Fund, Platypus started as an idea for a 2 song release, and blossomed into a 7 song EP. In October 2014, Cowboys in Cardigans entered SLR Studios with sound engineer Marty Bak to give birth to Platypus. 7 days later, the 7 songs were recorded, mixed, and ready for release.

The album’s name is indicative of its nature: A platypus is a strange combination of contrasting parts, coming together to form a whole that is seamless, yet bizarre. Platypus features the heaviest and softest songs Cowboys in Cardigans have released to date. From the aggressive opening track “She Should Be The Queen” to the lilty and fun “Kiss Me” to the spacey dream funk of “Spinning”, Platypus is unique, charming, sexy, and violent, all in a compact and efficient box. Listen for yourself, over and over again. It’s a little bit different every time.
