CD Review – Two Cow Garage

Two Cow Garage – Speaking in Cursive

Suburban Home Records

Take the Kurt Cobain’s voice and mash it with Michael Dean Damron’s and you get main vocalist Micah Schnabel’s voice. That raspiness mixed with a punkish classic rock sound makes for a sound that you either love or hate. For me, I really don’t like it. His voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me. He sounds like he has a permanent case of laryngitis. Thankfully, Shane Sweeney takes the lead on the tracks “Swallowed by the Sea” and the beautifully sparse “The Heart and the Crown.” With the exception of these two songs, this album is quite forgettable.
