Where The City Lights The Sky

Twenty-Ten Favorite

The resurgence of WestCoast music [NuCoast] by international artists had already begun in the late 2000s. By 2010, musicians from countries sporting cold beaches and nary a palm tree began to build brand new Aja-like audio scapes filled with a world where each day is an afternoon drive on the Pacific Coast Highway in an open coupe in 1979.

In 2010, Swedish buddies Daniel Andersson [vocals and guitar] and Stefan Olofsson [Leyboards and bass] formed State Cows, which evolved out of a Steely Dan tribute band. Their debut album features lots of solid production and arrangements, top-notch performances and pop hooks galore. They were able to get producer/songwriter/ guitarist extraordinaire Jay Graydon to play the solo on New York Town, bridging the old school with the new and started on off a mutual admiration society between 70s & 80s WestCoast rockers and the NuCoasters who were heavily influenced by them.
