Optimist High: new music by Chris Cohen

Multi-instrumentalist Chris Cohen has been in quite a few bands over the years. I really got into his guitar playing with Deerhoof on their record, Apple O. He’s just released a beautiful solo album entitled Overgrown Path. Sweet arrangements surround a Drake-ish voice and Robert Wyatt-like melodies pepper each tune on this gem. Check out this video for the track Optimist High.

He found his way to the states in the mid-80s and founded several underground publications such as Sports Illustrated and People magazine at the age of 11. Jonathan now lives in Austin with a bunch of other hip, white people.
