REAL LIFE ROCK

by

The perfectly Midwest feel of this record gives it its coherence. Where rock riffs, country twang and hard-boiled pop spin out of control, the "ex-construction worker" sensibilities bring things back to order. The Holy Cows (of Ann Arbor) offer up an enthusiastic, classic brand of rock that bespeaks a real passion for music with roots. Even while speaking on the surface through songs like "Your Garbage Man" and "Punched a Friend," the Cows go deep and uncover the heart of the matter. Blueberrie is solid end-of-the-day music to sing, dance and drink beer to -- for those who live a real life.
