A brilliant continuation of the homespun gold of 2012’s Overgrown Path and 2016’s As If Apart, Chris Cohen’s third solo record is a confident and engrossing pool of total wonder. His records are characterised by a vivid and distinctive sound, with Cohen handling all the instruments and production (his drumming is an utter dream for anybody who values the pocket over cymbal-thrashing theatrics).

Whilst some would feel inclined to characterise Cohen’s sound with allusions to references to ‘lo-fi’ seventies singer/songwriters, this undermines the sheer individuality of his work. From the sprawling atmosphere of House Carpenter to the buoyant Green Eyes and the mutated honky-tonk free jazz of The Link, this record is an utter feast for the ears.
