The best kept secret in music


"Locals@Large/ Pop and Circumstance"

Cooper Black. They've been described as being hard to describe, "with their mutual love of country and hip hop." You don't say.But then you hear a song like Velvet Lies, from last year's ingeniously titled E.P.1, which sounds like a sleep deprived Stereolab pitching in as the Grand Ole Opry's house band and, well, you start to get the picture.Yee-haw Yo. This is Alt Country at the outer limits, and you can say you saw it "when" at O Patro Vys on Sept.28th. - Hour Magazine (Gig Preview)


E.P.1, Indie Release


Feeling a bit camera shy


Being branded "Stereolab meets Hank Williams" can't be a bad thing.And actually not too far
from the truth either. From the dreamy pedal steel of "Velvet Lies", to the banjo jangle of
"The Road Up, The Road Down" to their twangy take on Grandmaster Flash's "White Lines", Cooper Black seem set to redefine the tired constraints of "Alt-Country" through their original approach to songs. 
Frankly, when is the  last time you tapped your feet to beatbox banjo soul? When Kraftwerk
opened a franchise in Nashville maybe?
