"Dudes vs. Bad Dudes" by Cowtown is a fun and energetic Post-Punk album.
Utilizing synth beats, moog, and thick fuzz guitar Cowtown crafts a rather dynamic record with some clearly strong influences.
Songs like "Love is a Lie" feature choruses that rely on the title phrase- bursting out as short and punchy accusations.
The track "Animals" introduces a new female lead vocal- somehow making the already light-hearted production sound more West Coast and sunny.
"Monotone Face" dips into a completely different sound, utilizing the same instruments but managing to sound like some lost 80's synth rock band with a vocal that seems to emulate the voice of a robot. The following track (entitled: 'Nightbeats') stays in the 80's new wave sound with a verse that sounds like it could be The Knack or Cars.
Altogether Cowtown manages to keep things interesting and catchy while mixing up stylistic influences from decade to decade.
Dudes vs. Bad Dudes by Cowtown is available via their Bandcamp page.
