Tim Cohen's Magic Trick by Tim Cohen

6/10 Clinton 11 March 2011

Not content with releasing about a billion Fresh and Only's albums here comes singer Tim Cohen the second (I think) of his solo outings. The opening track 'I Am Never Going to Die' (me neither, Tim) carries on the 60's Fresh and Only's vibe, an upbeat little pop song coming across like some kind of Hollies lost classic. More stripped down than his parent bands work but with a lovely homemade sound. From then on the album moves into other areas of popular music history 'New House in Heaven' recalls Silver Apples whilst 'Don't Give Up' and 'Legerdemain' are 50's influenced rock n' roll ballads coming across like a lo fi, line caught, hand made Chris Isaak. The funny thing with this album is that it is very similar to the last Fresh and Only's album in that it's front packed with upbeat late 60's pop but the further on you go the darker it gets with reverb heavy Doors and 13th Floor Elevators style swampy rock. Son its a mixed bag really but I'd prefer a bit more of the light and breezy psych pop for my moneysworth.
