REVIEW FROM OFFBEAT MAGAZINE, AUG 2014
(Elm City Music)
The 10th studio album from Cowboy Mouth finds them in familiar territory while offering a couple of tracks that deviate from the norm.
On “My Little Secret,” Cassandra Faulconer’s bassline oozes in as Fred LeBlanc sings, “I may not be the sharpest dresser and I ain’t so debonair / but what I lack in couth and tact I make up in savoir faire”—making it clear LeBlanc can handle himself in a number musical situations.
Perhaps the album’s best-executed track, “Mardi Gras by Moonlight” delves into the supernatural with a creeping guitar riff that sounds straight out of a James Bond film. On it, LeBlanc sings, “Here in New Orleans life and death intersect / Pathways from hell into paradise disconnect,” offering perfect vocals to an eerie and haunting track.
Overall, Go! captures what Cowboy Mouth has proven to represent—raucous songs with a strong rhythm section and powerful guitar riffs. Despite seemingly refusing to head in new directions, Cowboy Mouth has found a recipe for success and no one can fault them for sticking to it.
