Cosmic Wool: Cosmic Wool

Hailing from the Heartland of the America, Oklahoma rock act Cosmic Wool, which features the Romo brothers (Nevada and Rado who were both previously with Metal act Anti-Mortem and Nevada is also currently with the Southern Metal band, the Texas Hippie Coalition) are joined by guitarist / keyboardist Drew Williams and drummer Tom Frizzell. Together as Cosmic Wool, the band has released their first full-length, self-titled album that contains 8 tracks filled with vocal centered,down home flavored Alternative Rock.

"Space Rock" has been a term thrown around to describe Cosmic Wool and with their grooves and somewhat danceable and airy vibes, that term does tend to apply. Songs like, "What I've Been Up To All Alone" and "#Lonely" are pure Pop Alternative Dance, delivered with a bit of smooth, crooning vocals. Cosmic Wool shows their Psychedelic side on "Moonstone", while "Hole For My Head" is the straight up rocker of the lot and gets right to the point with an anthemic type of power. One thing that Cosmic Wool certainly does is offer the listener a bunch of different types of songs. There are basically 8 different types of songs on this record!

Cosmic Wool's debut full-length album is a jack of all trades that I found a bit disjointing. Are they a Funk Dance band? Are they a Post Alt band? Are they a straight up Rock n Roll band? The answer seems to be some of each of these things and because of that, as a whole, this debut seems a little hard to grasp. I found myself checking to see if it was the same band that I was listening to from the previous song. Taking each song as its own thing, their songwriting is solid and they are good for what they are, but thrown all together onto one record makes for a mish-mash of a listen.
