Cohesive - The McLovins

Last week brought many things: a few drenching rain jogs, a Canadian tuxedo, a paper or two, and most importantly Cohesive, the brand-new new single from The McLovins.  It was written by Tom Marshall, the chief lyricist for Phish and a friend of the band.  Pretty cool, if you ask me.

Maybe it's because I know the lyrics are from Tom Marshall, but I can just feel the Phishiness.  And that's a good thing.  There's a laid-back element to the sound that's different from their stuff on Conundrum and Good Catch.  It's also more traditionally structured: verse, chorus, verse, chorus, etc.  

I really can't wait to hear it live - I predict some really cool jams coming from this one.

The light shines on,

  1. It took me a minute to realize that I had to click the McLovins link at the top to hear the song. It's a great tune and very Phishy indeed.

    I wonder if Phish will cover the McLovins soon?

  2. 1:11PM: That's so funny! I had a dream about exactly that happening!
