“The Belfast Cowboys have brought a rhythm-inducing soundtrack to groove to with “The Upside to the Downslide.” The Belfast Cowboys may be known as a local bar band, but this album proves that they have depth that goes deeper than the sticky bar-floor surface. The soul sweats from each track, from high energy rock sessions to body swaying slow jams. This nine-piece not only focuses on Van Morrison, they also have an arsenal of original tracks to unleash. This record shows diversity throughout, “I’ve Been Working,” the second track on album enters past decades to consume the true flavor of Dan Kowalke’s guitar and the crushing vocals of Terry Walsh. Each track pulls from each of the nine members, with every instrument adding a certain sprinkle of magic. The horns keep it fresh like a musical summer salad. “House for Sale” is a ticket to paradise...Overall, The Belfast Cowboys bring a peppered, bluesy, soulful album.”
