If you follow Bay Area music closely, Slow Motion Cowboys should sound familiar to you – the band is a another project from Trainwreck Riders guitarist and vocalist Pete Frauenfelder. While Trainwreck Riders songs fit into what Fraunenfelder accurately describes as their “own genre that we’ve created over the last 11 years,” Slow Motion Cowboys represent new territory for Pete. The acoustic Buzzard Songs LP is full of wonderful dobro playing, which helped create a mood perfect for lonesome daydreaming. Slow Motion Cowboys just wrapped up a tour of the Southwest, visiting towns normally off the radar of almost all bands, such as Bisbee, Arizona and Chamo, New Mexico. Pete and the rest of the Cowboys will be playing the Crepe Palace in Santa Cruz on October 10.
