For those of you who haven’t been fortunate enough to see 20 year old ‘Henry Kohen’ (aka ‘Mylets’) live then stop right here. Before reading any further do a really quick YouTube check for the artist and only after you’ve picked your jaw up from the ground will we continue.

Kohen is a rare breed of musician. A multi-instrumentalist who has an incredible ability to produce sounds way beyond his years; and this young man does it all by himself. Astonishingly there’s no session musician, studio staff or Uncle Pete helping out with the percussion. This is a solo project that, only when you hear the overwhelming noise, do you really start to appreciate the attention to detail and commitment that goes into each track.

‘Arizona’ is LP number two from the LA musician and is a thankfully more complete release than 2013’s ‘Retcon’. While the debut showed promise in some areas’ is was to be somewhat of a disappointment. However, Kohen’s sophomore release is more of a real deal. These nine tracks of unapologetic rock (with an occasional genre-crossover) contain genuine moments of a guitar genius at work and the album repeatedly makes you consider just how one individual can be producing such accomplished but raucous music.

From the howling guitars of ‘Trembling Hands’ to the glorious melodies of ‘Honeypot’ this new material grows with each listen. It’s certainly not the finished article by any means but showcases an artist on the cusp of something momentous. Unlike its predecessor this new material highlights Kohen’s growing songwriting ability. Certainly, ‘Seven Seals’ and ‘Ampersand’ contain genuine elements of emotion and beauty which were absent from ‘Retcon’.

This is certainly the album that will bring ‘Mylets’ to the attention of a larger audience as this fascinating and enthralling sound simply cannot be ignored.
