There’s a specific type of anxiety that comes from not sleeping: that slow-moving worry that gets more intense as you watch the flash of the bedside clock go from double digits to single and back again. Are you living your best life? What does that coworker really think of you? Why are you not asleep? Is your mom OK? Does your partner actually love you? Why are you not asleep? Are you doing well at work? Did you handle that conversation with your sister like you wanted? Why are you not asleep?

You get the point. That specific, well, terror, hangs over Jackie Cohen’s two-part debut EP, 'Tacoma Night Terror,' a nine-song cycle about worry, dread and coming to terms with yourself, despite maybe hating parts of it. Written in 2015 in a house she shares with now-husband Jonathan Rado (Foxygen, and indie rock producer) and featuring The Lemon Twigs as her backing band, Cohen spent a year tweaking different elements of the EPs (split this year into parts titled 'I’ve Got The Blues' and 'Self-Fulfilling Elegy') before debuting them this year and opening on tour for Alex Cameron and others. As a whole, 'Tacoma Night Terror' is a stunning and complete debut, a mixture between Harry Nilsson, Fleetwood Mac and Nancy Sinatra performing someone’s LiveJournal entries.
