In addition to singing for San Francisco psych band, The Fresh & Onlys, Tim Cohen fronts Magic Trick, and cultivates his own personal material on the side. His newest solo effort, Luck Man, is out January 20 on Sinderlyn. Today, Cohen has shared “John Hughes,” a warm and bouncy psych pop track. Listen to it below.
Cohen wrote Luck Man in a stream-of-consciousness fashion, and recorded it in his attic and at El Studio in San Francisco. In a press release for the album, he said, “I like to think I’m leaving bits of wisdom behind, but I don’t possess the wisdom for longer than it takes to make a song. I inherit it momentarily, write it down, attach a melody that fits the words in rhythm, and then record it.”
