Sam Cohen made his solo debut on the CMJ Radio 200 this week with his album Cool It. After years fronting Apollo Sunshine and the Yellowbirds, as well as doing session work for a stunning variety of stars including the Grateful Dead‘s Bob Weir, the multi-instrumentalist self-recorded himself playing almost every note of the new album, which has a laid-back summer afternoon vibe to compliment his psychedelic, folk, and prog-rock leanings.
