Editorial Reviews

A singing drummer who writes psychedelic pop music, Chris Cohen also records his own bass, Casio MT65, piano, and guitar. Tracks like "Caller No. 99" and "Monad" follow idiosyncratic forms, but are still melodic in an unconventional and homegrown way like the best of Robert Wyatt, Mayo Thompson, Syd Barrett, and Jerry Garcia. Overgrown Path unfolds its delicate and unexpected arrangements around Cohen s relaxed baritone, unhurriedly revealing the detailed world wrapped up in each song.

Format: Audio CD
This is a really nice album, with texture, melody and thoughtfulness put into the arrangements. It reminds me of a folksy Robert Pollard meets Emmit Rhodes, meets Epic Soundtrax solo era stuff. Warm, sometimes melancholy, but also somewhat uplifting. Nice work!

Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
A brilliant and beautiful record. Chris Cohen apparently recorded this himself in a home studio type situation, and it has a charming lo-fi vibe while still sounding lush and interesting. On the whole the songs are personal in theme and idiosyncratic in sound, full of sophisticated yet accessible melodies and rhythms.

Cohen bills himself as a "singing drummer" on his label's website, and there is indeed some spirited drumming on this album. There is also great piano playing, synth textures, and bass work, and the occasional brief yet tasty guitar solo. From this minimal palette he constructs a unique and absorbing sound world, and the accomplished musicianship never crosses the line into indulgence.

Overgrown Path is a must have for fans of quirky pop music, or anyone who has followed Cohen's other great work with The Curtains, Deerhoof, and Cryptacize.
