Our dear amigo Tim Cohen has quickly established himself as someone who is in the “can do no wrong” category at this point in his musical career. Wether it be his work in Fresh & Onlys, or as a solo musician, the guy’s music is loved by the entire ATH staff. Currently working on a new solo album, we’ve already heard “Goodness” from the LP, and now he’s offered up another new single called “I’m a Girl”. I shall let the single speak for itself and just say that you should most definitely check out this album when it drops. Educate yourself.
Tim Cohen will release new album The Modern World on September 28th via Sinderlyn.
As I’m sure many of you know by now, we are sent tons of music on the regular and much of it will never make its way to this site. Then that rare tune hits the inbox and we’re reminded why we do this in the first place. This inspiring track called “Little Ears”, from Syracuse based Spark Alaska, is giving me that musical reminder. I’m immediately reminded here of a similar young man named Conor Oberst and some of his earlier work. It’s intimate, pop driven, and hard to forget. Enjoy it with me.
Spark Alaska has a new album called Longest Winter currently available on bandcamp.
