    Tacoma Night Terror
Chillin’ in her tower like a doomed princess, over-feeler supreme Jackie Cohen has two options: she can either stress-vomit herself into the great beyond, or she can present her debut EP.
'Tacoma Night Terror Part 1 (I’ve Got the Blues)' is her first collection of NYC English Department anti-folk songs, full of piquant poetry set to curious nods to classic and country pop and rock.
Half a decade ago, living on Spring Street in Lower Manhattan, not yet official wine-hiccoughing age, not yet (to knowledge) getting Roland Barthes quotes tattooed on her “under-boob [sic],” Cohen was absolutely of the Lower East Side. Pixie-cut, book-laden, always whooshing to or from a lit theory class – she had that particular New York hypochondria and fidgetiness, which she now comments is “actually just a byproduct of Jewishness,” and by the seriousness of her Uniqlo heat-tech turtleneck, you would never have guessed that she was actually a transplant of the “janky but charming” San Fernando Valley.
In her EP, recorded post-grad back in the SFV with some rando prog-nerds (read: Jonathan Rado and The Lemon Twigs), flavors of each location permeate her poem-songs. The Greenwich Village smartypants, fuck-fashion folk of The Moldy Peaches and Regina Spektor pokes its head up in the jaunty greek tragedy “Ladies’ Man.” Then, on “Maddy” and desert grunge “Bold,” we hear echoes of Topanga Canyon’s finest—Stevie Nicks and On The Beach-era Neil Young, respectively.
