Jackie Cohen / Announces Debut Album 'Zagg' With New Single 'FMK'
Jackie Cohen has announced she’ll release her debut album, ‘Zagg’, on 10th May 2019 via Spacebomb. ‘Zagg’ follows Jackie’s two introductory EPs “Tacoma Night Terror Parts 1 & 2,” which were released last year, also on Spacebomb, and were called "utterly spellbinding" (The Line of Best Fit), "a stunning and complete debut" (Vinyl Me, Please), and "sleazy-listening glam" (The Guardian).
Taking its title from one of Jackie’s many, many nicknames, ‘Zagg’ was co-produced by Jonathan Rado (Foxygen) & Matthew E. White and features the Spacebomb House Band, with horns & strings arranged by Trey Pollard, whilst artwork for the album comes courtesy of The Moldy Peaches’ Adam Green.
Speaking about this full-length debut, Jackie herself shares: “‘Zagg’ is me, my name, and this record is my first real, intentional, nearly unabashed step toward being myself confidently out in the world. Here I am! Here are my songs. Making this record was truly a “life zagg” for me. I quit my marketing job. I quit my teaching job. I quit my sausage sampling at the mall job. I started taking my meds as directed. I’m reflecting instead of spiraling. Got my egg cracked a few times but I’m landing sunny side up.”
Having toured with the likes of Mac DeMarco, Alex Cameron, and The Lemon Twigs as well as playing her own headline shows on both sides of the Atlantic throughout 2018, Jackie makes a return to the stage with her SXSW debut in March. She’ll play a set at The Spacebomb Revue (Tues 12th March @ Antones, 305 E 5th St, Austin TX) alongside Bedouine, Andy Jenkins and many, many more Spacebomb associated acts.
