Voted one of the Top Albums of 2009 by SF Weekly
Tim Cohen may be familiar to you because you recently heard about the Fresh & Onlys, are a fan of the multi-genred Black Fiction, or are familiar with one of his many mysterious side projects. This record, however, is the first to bear his name. Written and recorded by Tim at his home during the interim between the unfortunate end of Black Fiction and the birth of the Fresh & Onlys, 'The Two Sides of Tim Cohen' is perhaps his most personal work to date. An immensely creative psych-folk opus, it is full of heartfelt love songs, amazing visions, & musings on death and worms. Tim's songs are reminiscent of the catchy, self-produced pop songs of (RAM era) Paul McCartney and Emitt Rhodes crossed with the skewed baritone bellows of Skip Spence and Michael Yonkers. Recommended for fans of Ariel Pink, Panda Bear, and Mayo Thompson, this vinyl-only release is shared by Secret Seven & Empty Cellar Records . Keeping with the times, the album comes with a CD-quality digital download of the full album plus seven unreleased bonus songs.
