Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst – I Feel Like I’ve Got Snakes In My Hand

Steven Casper & Cowboy Angst – I Feel Like I’ve Got Snakes In My Hand
Silent City Records
So-Cal’s Steven Casper weaves influences ranging from rockabilly, surf rock, country, blues into some that is edgy and potent, but also hooky and comforting. The music boogies right out of the gate with an instrumental called “For A Few Dollars Less,” setting the stage for the mayhem that is to follow. Undeniably toe-tapping romps like “Driving Fast” and “She’s Bad” display Steve’s Dylan-meets-Mark-Knopfler-meets-Bowie vocal timbre, and the prodigious chops of his players. Jangly guitar chords and fat, sizzling riffs are fueled by rollicking rhythms and some tasty keyboard work. “Maria” has a touch of Hispanic influence with a smoothly rocking groove. “Slow Dancing” proves Steve can also handle ballads with grace and emotion. This is only a six song EP debut but you just know that there is a massive tank brimming with talent and innovative passions just waiting to be unleashed. Watch out for this guy! – MW
