“Jason Trzaska and Peter Hill formed Cow Pals on a lark, following the collapse of their more sober, straight-faced indie bands, US Funk Team and Except After Sea. The financial pressures of touring and the anxiety of searching for a small press label soured both musicians on the business.In the mood for a lighthearted project, they decided to write a series of songs around canned Casio drumbeats. The result was the 13-song album, “Eskimo Kisses,” plus a few less-than-serious DIY videos.But these days the Casio is back in the shed in favor of Tank — US Funk Team’s mononymous drummer — and Cow Pals are officially climbing out of their camp phase. “Sometimes the funny stuff can be a double-edged sword,” says Trzaska. “Some people get it right away, but others hear the tongue-in-cheek kind of stuff, and they just assume we’re not serious. That’s far from the truth.“”
