    “Though Tim Cohen (The Fresh & Onlys, Magic Trick) and Jon Bernson (Exray’s, Ray’s Vast Basement) have been long- time collaborators, Window Twins is the primary outlet for their shared visions; a cyclical partnership, struck up when the animus moves both Bay Area staples. With the support of close friend and visual artist Kevin Earl Taylor, the duo advanc- es on the strength of two distinctive voices at play in their recordings. Though the two musicians’ equally distinctive vocals have a central role, they act in tandem with meticulously orchestrated loops and potent but minimal instrumentation.

    Wish is the group’s second album together and it deftly focuses the parameters of its predecessor, I’m This Tall City, re- leased in 2009. Famous genre-busters, Cohen and Bernson conjure an endless range of sensation in their collaboration, their dry wits finding outlets in drowsy psych-soul, shambolic rhapsodies; anxious meditations given further character by Warren Huegel’s layered percussion, Aaron Rocker’s moody horns and Amanda Hallquist’s solitary wurlitzer. To all of this, add an experimental beat sensibility, beyond and often in tandem with live drums, that really seems to define the collabo- ration and the core of its shared experiment.”

    Reviews
    “... a collection of atmospheric sketches that explore the scuzzy, sinister, and lo-fi fringes of jazzy R&B, and ramshackle folk... it’s a fascinating listen.”
    -Steven Hyden, Pitchfork

    “While Tim Cohen is probably best known for fronting The Fresh & Onlys, and Jon Bernson for the experimental pop trio Exray’s, Wish mixes lo-fi electronics with psychedelic folk for something weirder and harder to pin down than either one.” -Nathan Reese, Interview Magazine

    “... with Wish, the follow-up to their 2009 debut I’m This Tall City, [Window Twins] make perhaps the most profound case for their partnership and blend of experimental folk-pop.”
    -Chris Coplan, Consequence of Sound
