Cowbell - Waiting For Yesterday
New LP of breezy Rock N Roll vibes from the excellent Cowbell.
Waiting For Yesterday is the fourth Cowbell LP. This time we are joined by some old friends to add a coat of sonic luxury to our usual stripped- back garage sound. Recorded fast and loose over sessions in the old world back in 2018 and 2019, it’s a record crammed with nostalgia, memories and fleeting hints of regret. The title track makes even more sense to me now than it did back then.
We’d journeyed into the more psych/soul realm with our last record Haunted Heart but these new songs really hit their stride with the expanded band, particularly on our very own lost Northern Soul ballad “Throw It All Away” and “Got Me You Where You Want Me” where a Curtis Mayfield inspired guitar leans on a loose Bill Withers style groove. There’s something of a West Coast sleazy & breezy feel and a cinematic aura to tracks like “Be My Man” and “Garage Flowers” where Wednesday takes the lead vocals.
Waiting For Yesterday was recorded at the The Cube studio in Stoke Newington, London with Laurie Sherman. We’d rehearse and record four new songs each day, and despite having never played together before, we hit the ground running, taking just three days to track the entire album. Finding our sound so quickly was useful in a small hot studio, not least as Wednesday, behind the drums, was heavily pregnant at the time. Sometimes energy and passion can be inspired by the most practical necessities.
Tom Wright plays Bass, and Fabio D’agostini is on Lead Guitar. The artwork is by Jaime Zuverza - an Austin based artist and musician who stitched together all the themes from the record and brought them to life in one incredible cover.
The music is available digitally through Damaged Goods Records and a very Limited Edition of 200 LPs on our own imprint Cool Jerk Records.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
