may be familiar t
o you because you recently heard about The Fresh & Onlys,
are a fan of the multi-genred Black Fiction
, or are familiar with one of his many mysterious side projects.
This newly released record, The Two Sides of Tim Cohen,
however, is the first to bear his name. Written and recorded by Tim at his home during the interim between the unfortunate end of Black Fiction and the birth of The Fresh & Onlys, The Two Sides of Tim Cohen
is perhaps his most personal work to date. An immensely creative psych-folk opus, it is full of heartfelt love songs, amazing visions, and musings on death and worms. Tim's songs are reminiscent of the catchy, self-produced pop son
gs of RAM-era Paul McCartney
crossed with the skewed baritone bellows of Skip Spence
and Michael Yonkers
. The new album is recommended for fans of Ariel Pink, Panda Bear
and Mayo Thompson
. It has been released on Secret Seven/Empty Cellar Records.
The Two Sides of Tim Cohen
is available at Amoeba now, on vinyl only, and includes an mp3 downloadable version with seven, yes, SEVEN bonus tracks! The release is limited to 250 copies, 100 of which are on white vinyl.
