Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst / Press

“Angst ain't the half of it. These cowboys are dipped in everything from cowpies to cowabunga and have a country edge, but they don't stop there. Toss in a bit of Foghat, Motown (that's right---Motown!), San Francisco (the early 70s, which you can credit to violinst-with-angst Ross Levinson) and a whole lot of South cushioned (thankfully) by the less-than-Van-Zant voice of Casper (in this case, less really is more and haven't we all heard enough of those lame Southern Rock clones?). But let us be honest here, the South is not the key anyway. It is the mix. That mix is intriguing, "Through With You" feeding on Motown and modern rock, the melody line following Simon & Garfunkel's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and The Temptations' "My Girl" in short bursts. They sound nothing like either, so that may be a stretch, but the lines are there. It is straight up rock, no chaser… ”

“This little album is so good we might not deserve it. But it’s here this summer. ”

“New and recommended Americana tracks include the Bills' "Blackberry, Ivy and Broom," Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst's "Trouble," Deadstring Brothers' "Like a California Wildfire," Futurebirds' "Virginia Slims," Go Jane Go's "When I'm Not Thinking About You," Adam Klein & the Wild Fires' "Sky Blue Deville" and the McCrary Sisters' soulful "Train."”

“Shit - this is on helluva groovy EP that Steven Casper and his band delivers! On one hand you have the typical midwest groove a´la John Mellencamp and on the other hand you have the Jonny Kaplan sort of midwestrock. And somewhere between the mish mash of styles you have a "violin-joyfilled-orgy". And hey - do not forget the cool voice of Steven Casper.”
