Chris Cohen, Deeper, Blind Moon 

When: Thu., June 9, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $10
After years of pinging between bands as a sideman while leading Cryptacize, his own great combo with singer Nedelle Torrisi, Chris Cohen has found a sweet spot by going it all alone. The new As if Apart (Captured Tracks) is his second lovely solo effort—he plays and sings everything—filled with insinuating, soothing pop melodies that recall the glory days of 70s AM pop radio. His nasal croon resembles the Kinks’ Ray Davies at times, but there’s a decidedly modest, homemade vibe to the proceedings that seems to suggest a hesitance to rock out. The songs are all strong enough to survive a full-band treatment in a club, and I remain charmed by Cohen’s narcotic delivery, a kind of Laurel Canyon fantasy soured by a deliberate lack of resolution.
