COS - COSMIX 2LP
COS might not be the first genre defying progressive music group you’ve heard who share both wordless onomatopoeic vocals and a snappy three letter title (complete with philosophical leanings and alchemic penchants) but on listening to this first ever custom COS compendium you might have just discovered a new favourite.
Perhaps it’s no coincidence that COS share close spiritual, stylistic or social connections to the aforementioned bands, as one of the few long-withstanding single-syllable ensembles to remain utterly idiosyncratic and incomparable within their hyper-focussed and impenetrable creative bubble.
But as a 1970s group that effortlessly mix head-nod prog, synth-driven jazz, cinematic sound-designs, dislocated disco, Arkestral operatics and high-brow conceptual anti-pop grooves, it’s easier to remember the name COS than thumb the vast amount of genre-dividers in your local record shop which COS could occupy.
With the crème de la crème of Belgian jazz / prog / psych / funk within their ranks, their combined idea-to-ability ratio litters the COS-ography with concepts that aficionados, fans, collaborators and critics still haven’t began to unravel.
