I’ll admit it. I did not know much about Coma Cinema going into the September 12th show at FUC in Philly. I read the typical source materials and found that they were a band out of South Carolina, they were formed by Mat Cothran in 2005, Pitchfork posted a video of theirs back in 2010.. But what I definitely didn’t know was that a saxophone could be so seamlessly blended with a keyboard, so many songs could be run through with such short breaks, and that I would be witnessing the playing of a bunch of unreleased tracks. Coma Cinema was a solid act. Although I hadn’t anticipated taping so many songs back to back, I couldn’t stop recording. I kept waiting as the songs seemed to get better and better. Not that I didn’t enjoy the first. But you know… Anyhow, for me, the second song in this video, “Caroline, Please Kill Me” was my favorite. It had an infectious chorus and beat. Jazz elements supported by the sax, electronic elements from the keys, punk from the drums, emo-esque voice from Mat, with solid guitar and bass lines.. I enjoyed it. Check out the 5 song half set below:
