Even if you don’t know Chris Cohen by the name, you know his work. The multi-instrumentalist has spent time with Deerhoof, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Danielson, and Cass McCombs, but now he’s striking out on his own.
Tomorrow, Captured Tracks will release his solo album Overgrown Path. True to its name, Cohen tinkered with the record in rural Vermont, and what results is a collection of songs overgrown with strong pop melodies and gentle psychedelic flourishes. His voice almost immediately recalls Dirty Projectors’ Dave Longstreth, but he’s a bit more pensive and willing to indulge in a groove. Stream the album in its entirety over at Captured Tracks’ Soundcloud.
