The Cow Song


MoBlack Records
MBR394 | 2020-07-31  
Unfolding its 394th saga, MoBlack Records alights in Gauteng catching on to up and coming South African artist KingDonna as he envisages vast pastures through “The Cow Song” and frolics in its aural space as he goes right along. Through a delicate interplay of tribal music elements and subtle electronic maneuvering, the immersive 8:35 minute “Song” celebrates the fine yet complex and often subjective line between exterior and within, resounding the subject while manifesting the context and senses that shape its form. A careful build up zooms in and out as indistinct vocals detract focus, leading to an emotionally provoking climax that breaks but ultimately makes the track with redeeming piano chords. MBR394th’s length works to its favor as its inquisitive and at times anxious start fulfills its arc in buoyant musing throughout the latter half. Passed the 6 minute mark, KingDonna pursues a more optimistic approach, bestrewing percussion into melody to make the daydream more tangible, and though “The Cow Song” may seem to come to an abrupt and unwelcome end, it comes to remind that the sun only sets, to rise again.
