The new album from Chris Cohen, former contributing member of Deerhoof, The Curtains and Cryptacize and tormer touring player of Cass McCombs, Haunted Graffiti and Danielson.

‘As If Apart’, the long-awaited sequel to Chris Cohen’s 2012 soft psych garden of unearthly alter-pop earworms and studio-sonic delights, ‘Overgrown Path’, follows its predecessor with another bittersweet ensemble of dreamy, complex songs.

Pushing the idiosyncrasies of Cohen’s melodic and rhythmic approach into even more fractured, shifting spaces, ‘As If Apart’ unsettles lazy pop conventions, upending jaded heads and hearts with an expansive, moody psychedelia. Where ‘Overgrown Path’ plunged within, ‘As If Apart’ voyages out.

To say that this is how pop music should have turned out would be nostalgic - a misapprehension of time, pop, history and our place within those structures - what we could say is that this is how pop music has turned out alongside itself - how it has become beside itself - as if apart.
