Tim Cohen's Magic Trick (solo)
Tim Cohen's Magic Trick (solo)
THIS WILL BE A SPECIAL TIM COHEN SOLO SHOW!

Magic Trick is Tim Cohen (Fresh & Onlys, Black Fiction), Noelle Cahill, Alicia Vanden Heuvel (#poundsign#, Still Flyin), and James Kim (Kelley Stoltz Band, Court & Spark).

Empty Cellar Records is proud to announce the latest full-length album by Tim Cohen, The Glad Birth of Love. This is Tim Cohen’s fourth album following his 2009 debut, The Two Sides of Tim Cohen (Empty Cellar), and two full-lengths (Laugh Tracks / Tim Cohen’s Magic Trick) and one EP (Bad Blood) on New York’s Captured Tracks label. Featuring guest appearances by John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees), Grace Cooper (The Sandwitches), Diego Gonzalez (The Dry Spells, Citay), and several other San Francisco musicians, The Glad Birth of Love is the first Tim Cohen album to not directly bear his name, but the name of his band, Magic Trick. Recorded in a tower at Tim Cohen’s home this album marks a departure from his signature radio-ready song craft. The Glad Birth of Love is a 45 minute album composed of four epic long-form compositions saturated with Tim’s uncanny pop sensibilities and vivid lyrical imagery. Transitioning seamlessly from sparse acoustic blues, to dense bass & oud ragas, to layered of lush vocal harmonies this album is a culmination of Tim’s work to date.

"As a lyricist, Fresh & Onlys frontman Tim Cohen clearly evokes the early era of rock'n'roll he also explores in his music. His chord changes are simple without being rudimentary, his lyrics are romantic without being cheesy, and-- perhaps most notably-- his output is outrageously prolific without skirting inconsistency." --Pitchfork
Magic Bullets (last show ever!)
Magic Bullets (last show ever!)
SF band's last show ever!

"On their sophomore full-length, San Francisco's Magic Bullets take careful, well positioned steps to revive a sound that marries early 1980s UK guitar pop and 90s college rock. That specific band names will come to mind when discussing Magic Bullets is unavoidable: The Smiths and Orange Juice are obvious, as are the nods to the sunnier elements of twee." --Pitchfork

"A strong Smiths sensibility shines through these four songs for sure, and while everyone seems to be going the fuzz-pop route these days it's actually kind of refreshing right now to hear these flowing dreamy-pop nuggets that soar so nicely on their own without relying on lo-fidelity fuzz for instant credibility. We're sure these guys wish they could have come of age in the early '80s Manchester scene but we're super happy they are here now creating songs that while nod to that era still sound so fresh and relevant." --Aquarius Records
