Little Cow - I'm in Love with Every Lady

I can't help being flippant reviewing this, simply because the music puts me in a flippant carefree mood. It's a great feel-good record. Track it down.

Little Cow – I'm in Love with Every Lady

People close to me know that me & my girlfriend like Hungarian music. So when a slightly bewildered co-editor passed this LP over to me, muttering "this looks like its one of yours" I did take it in my grubby palms and treasure it carefully until I got a chance to bung it on the stereo. I was not disappointed. It's a riot, choc-full of the weird, intensely eclectic, slightly perky song swirls that Hungarian artists are so adept at; (the title track demonstrates sufficient evidence of this). Of course, I've no idea what they're on about. My Hungarian stops with Nem Sabat (which means "don't do that" by the way).

 

But hell, I'm not doing a language course I'm here to tell you about this record. It has elements of allsorts; jaunty folk waltzes being the main one, albeit "updated". Weirdly enough it reminds me of a Manu Chao at times. The language switches at times between Hungarian, English & German. It's a very uplifting release, as it never sits still long enough for you to get broody. There's sprightliness in the song writing that is never laboured, even on the quietest of tracks, such as The Choky is Melting. Apparently that's about chocolate melting.

 

I can't help being flippant reviewing this, simply because the music puts me in a flippant carefree mood. It's a great feel-good record. Track it down.
