Columbus, Ohio’s Two Cow Garage are one of the best kept secrets in the alt-country/rock world. Owing as much to Hank Williams Sr as they do the Rolling Stones, Two Cow is one of the absolute best around in the expanding world of alt-country/twang rock/whatever the hell you want to call it.

On “Sweet Saint Me” (their 5th album), TCG manages to take their established formula and make it even better. A much more polished sounding record than some of their previous releases (without sounding like some overly produced, shiny assault on the ears) the record manages to mix in many great all out rockers sure to get the crowd bobbing their heads and shaking their asses  (the album’s opener ‘Sally, I’ve Been Shot’ being one example. ‘My Great Gatsby’ being another) but also mixing in their real strong point; mid/slow tempo jams that will take up a permanent and heavy rotation in my iPod (‘Soundtrack to My Summer’ is great. And the albums closer, ‘Brothers In Arms’, has ANTHEM written all over it.)

The band has a a big slate of tour dates coming up in support of the album, kicking off this Saturday 9/25 in Columbus with their record release show. If you want to catch them at a spot near you check the dates below.
