November 2007

the calm before...the rising storm!

As we're heading towards the end of the year, it's time to slow the new releases down and concentrate on what we've sent out into the world this past year. Here's a li'l list:

Agnes Kain: Keep walking or I'll kill you (hac131)
Kid Cornered: Kid Cornered (hac129)
the Raylenes: Let the Wild Rumpus Start (hac128)
Bernie Hayes: Homebody (hac127)
Dog Trumpet - Peter O'Doherty & Reg Mombassa: Antisocial Tendencies (hac126)
the Wild Cherries: That's Life (hac113)
the Triangles: Seventy-Five Year Plan (hac125)
Luke Russell: The Kiss that lasted all Weekend (hac124)

Half A Cow only has a couple more cds planned for 2007 and the next one is...

SWAYBACK with a new double-sided cd single out in early November.

One Way Traffic/Moonlight Drive (hac132)

Having toured their wild rockin' debut LP The Quest for Rock & Roll extensively throughout 2006, Swayback established themselves a reputation as one of Australia's premier live acts. Returning to the studio early this year, the band enlisted the help of multi-ARIA winning producer, Paul McKercher (Powderfinger, Augie March, Eskimo Joe), to create a brand new studio sound. The result? Swayback now has a new baby, its single 'One Way Traffic'. Showing plenty of the cheeky swagger that won the original album so much praise, the new sound is a more considered straight-down-the-line riffage, creating room for all kinds of experimentation. Swayback's new work included Vegas-style brass, garage 'boards, and syrupy steel, that'll pleasantly surprise hard core fans. Could this two track snippet from Swayback's upcoming second LP (due February 2008) be the feel-good hit of the Summer? Well, we think so…at least you can be sure that, you won’t be hearing anything else like 'One Way Traffic' this year. Swayback want's you to groove, so hop on for the one way ride!
