Listen to Hospital
COBY BROWN – FRENCH EXIT
Brown’s latest, French Exit, marks a seismic sonic shift for the LA based singer/songwriter.
While 2008’s Stars & Curses, written after a bout with cancer, was a love letter to being alive, French Exit is a visit with ghosts. These songs are short and spare, dressed up in an echo and over before you’re ready for them to be.
Produced by Will Golden and Brown, French Exit features guest turns from David Immergluck (Counting Crows, Camper Van Beethoven), Fil Krohnengold (Sarah Bareilles, Duncan Sheik) and drummer Michael Jerome (Richard Thompson, John Cale).
Currently, Brown has songs in the features “The River Why" and “Answers to Nothing” and Counting Crows have covered his song "Hospital" on their latest release, "Underwater Sunshine". Brown is set to release French Exit on his own 4East Records in Spring 2013.
“..French Exit is one of those rare records that needs to be listened to straight through– there isn’t a misfire.…This is useful music. This is beautiful music. And now that I have it, I can’t imagine not having it anymore. You guys have to check this guy out.”
“Stars & Curses is…Awash with atmosphere… all shimmer and seduction.”
