Chris Cohen at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver Friday night. The Captured Tracks recording artist is on tour for his sophomore album, As If Apart. Captured Tracks released the album on May 6.
Songs include “Torrey Pine”. The project marks Cohen’s first release since his 2012 solo debut, Overgrown Path.
According to a press release, As If Apart is “the long-awaited sequel” to the “soft psych garden of unearthly alter-pop earworms and studio-sonic delights” of Overgrown Path. The release goes on to describe the follow-up as “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. And up.”
Additionally, the album features two songs with lyrics by Zach Phillips (of Blanche Blanche Blanche, CE Schneider Topical, OSR label, et al.).
