Stream Itasca’s Album Open to Chance.

Thanks to Folk Radio UK for hosting an advance stream of Itasca’s mesmerizing PoB debut Open to Chance, and to MOJO for their aptly written 4-star review: “simultaneously spare and complex, observational folk ballads turned psychic and strange by metal-stringed dissonance and troubling Symbolist metaphor.” Pitchfork calls the album “a sprawling fascination with the natural world and the nature of people.”

Itasca: Open to Chance (PoB-030)

Itasca: Open to Chance (PoB-030)

The music of L.A.-based guitarist, singer, and songwriter Kayla Cohen is mutable and multivalent, richly allusive of the hermetic worlds of private-press canyon-cult mystics and East Coast noiseniks alike. Her adept fingerstyle guitar work—nimble but unshowy, always at the service of framing her plaintively unspooling modal progressions and gorgeous, moonlit voice—centers these melancholy pastorales in a hazy, heat-mirage space equally suggestive of familiarity and distance, community and anomie. Itasca’s enchanting, acid folk-inflected PoB debut is also the first to feature a full band.
