Slow Motion Cowboys
On the new album "In Exile/On the Mesa" Pete Fields of the Slow Motion Cowboys has written songs to try and put down the feeling of a place changing before his eyes . Speaking the truth about the old neighborhoods and the vanishing characters of the bands home town of San Francisco, the album takes you on a tour with the folks who know it best. Written in Field's new home of Oakland, CA and recorded live in an Airstream trailer in Taos, New Mexico, the songs ride between the two worlds, and lope with a rhythm that contradicts the fast changing world we live in today. As the name might suggest, the Slow Motion Cowboys push back against the money and technology disconnecting us from our communities and the creative bonds that create a feeling of place. Songs such as "Foggy Moon" and "Golden Gal" describe the wandering thoughts and nostalgia of someone looking and longing for someone or something that is not visible anymore, asking for a second chance to make it right. In "Georgie" the traditional melody is layered with words sung only to the sleeping, an admission of dedication and love that could never be said during the light of day. On "In Exile/On the Mesa" SMC capture the infectious energy and good will that has come to define their live shows. The lap steel dances behind the wavering vocal melodies, the rhythm section seizing the past with its traditional country music tempos, showcasing the cohesion of musicians polished from extensive touring throughout the South West U.S. The pertinence is clear listening to the record, the Cowboys are inviting you to peek through the key hole and open up a feeling that has come to define Pete's songwriting. Bearing the torch from the bottom of the Bay to the tip of the Mesa, these are country songs, story songs, desert shanties kicking up the dust before it settles into something none of us recognize.
Nostalgic for a past that never was, Old Pal is the project of Shawn Wyman, Ivy Anderson, and friends.
