Happy New Year! We’re only a week into 2019 and we’re already thrilled for another year of exciting new music, so let’s get right to it!
In the late ’70s, multi-instrumentalist and producer Chris Cohen entered the world of music banging on drum heads when he was just three. Fast forward to to the mid-2000s, where Cohen the “singing drummer” provided his talents for a variety of groups, most notably in The Curtains, Ariel Pink and Deerhoof. In 2012 Cohen took his solo psychedelic pop to the studio and has self-sufficed across several recordings since.
Chris Cohen wrapped up 2018 with his first new song in a couple years, doubling as his first solo material recorded with other musicians (Tuneyards saxophonist Kasey Knudsen and composer/pianist Jay Israelson), rather than entirely on his own. Cohen’s new single teases more music to come in 2019 so let’s highlight Cohen’s latest and start the new year off on a revisionist note with “Edit Out”!
