Anthony Cozzi, best known for his role in Chicago bands Cococoma and Radar Eyes, doesn’t like to be pigeonholed. Just as his band Radar Eyes evolved from a psychedelic garage outfit into a slick postpunk band, Cozzi’s influence, instrumentation, and craftsmanship have become deeper and wider, though he obviously maintains the inclusion of his precious hooks. In Sin Asps, Anthony’s new solo project, jumps from the rock songbook, plunging fully into the realm of rhythmic synthesizer music. On his debut self-titled cassette, Cozzi draws from themes of dystopia, futurism, and the mythical. Sin Asps is an alluring listen, in terms of both prescient lyrical content and sonic quality. A song like “Black Iron Prison” is both claustrophobic and catchy, musing on, well, confinement, but at other times, like on the mind-bending, rollicking “Moog Suicide,” Cozzi goes straight synth instrumental, crafting a tight, evenly-paced narrative. Sin Asps is Cozzi at his most sonically adventurous, eschewing all non-electronic instruments, aside from his voice.
