NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR "WHISPERS TO ROCKEFELLER" BY ANTHEM JACKSON PRODUCTIONS: vimeo.com/106149708
"EYE OF WINTER" is an introspective reflection of a personal mental state of winter. It is the result of a hibernation of Colin's mind from "the commons" which yielded writings about coming to terms with the dark realities & truth of all underlaying found within the rhelm of Art/Society/Politics.
Colin Cowan & The Elastic Stars is the brain child of the gent mentioned in the band's title. This is a psychedelic folk/rock project that started as a result of Colin deciding to branch off from many other bands as a bass player (MALCOLM JACK/DADA PLAN/WOODPIGEON/DAN MANGAN/ANALOG BELL SERVICE/TARIQ/JENN BOJM/CHRIS KELLY/ROB BUTTERFIELD/TINY PYRAMIDS/SUN RA'S STAR SYSTEM), and instead sing the songs he's been secretly writing, all-the-while operating the guitar machine at the same time! ... from time to time. The music aims to be a florescent cup of warm nostalgic soup fit for any contemporary starchild or drifter...
COLIN COWAN & THE ELASTIC STARS, (usually Colin Cowan, Ben Brown, Chris Kelly, Jenn Bojm) with no doubt, is a must-see live band... But so happens to be somewhat of a solo-project in the recording process thus far, where he is making four seasonal state-of-mind albums ... One album a year for four years... One album for each season.. ALL SONICALLY DIFFERENT. (bit of a mouthful;)
The debut album "FALL PATHS" kicked it all off last Aug.2013.
Now, coming VERY SOON, is ALBUM #2 in this Seasonal Series:
"EYE OF WINTER" is currently scheduled to be released on vinyl and for the public NOV.28/2014...
released 28 November 2014
