More Chris Cohen? Yes, Please!

chrisA few years ago, I was milling about at SXSW trying to catch every band between Hotel Vegas and Volstead. Like many a year, you could easily pinpoint a sound, until I caught Chris Cohen playing. I stopped in my tracks, drawn to the gentle voice floating from the stage; it’s much the way I spent today when I heard his newest single. There’s a calm to it, something almost effortless in every musical move he makes. You’ll likely hear notes of Dent May or Jens Lekman on this track, although I think Chris takes more of a turn away from the pop-centric vibe. His new album, As If Apart, is being releasing on May 6th via Captured Tracks, and you can bet we’ll be playing it to the max.
