Brand New Music from Pema
Those of you spouting off about how Austin music is dying need to just stop. Today alone I ran singles from Slomo Drags and Bloody Knives…both better than 99% of what’s come across my desk from elsewhere. Now we have this brand new track from Pema, the working title of Alex Cohen’s new pop-centric project. She’s most well-known in town for her work with Alex Napping, but the brilliance of this track should not go unnoticed. What’s most striking for me his the strength of her voice; it’s always been great, but it’s presence in the mix is really remarkable (it reminds me a lot of Amber Coffman). I love the playful work of everything behind her voice too…such a good introduction to her new project. Look for her debut, Doublethink, via Wishy Washy Records on June 3rd.
