Alice Cohen (Bassist in outpost) has recently performed at The Kitchen with Delia Gonzales and Gavin Russom, and at Deitch Projects, with artist Terence Koh.
She has recorded and toured in various bands, going back to The Vels in the 80's, Die Monster Die in the 90's, and more recently The Long Lost and Castles, to name a few. Currently performing as a solo artist, her new work blends futuristic keyboard tones with transcendental guitar riffs and train of thought lyrics. Cohen's songs take you to locations found in dreams and the subconscious, with tales involving seaweed and outerspace. Sometimes catchy, with a darkened pop core, the sound still ventures into unexpected landscapes.
Percussion specialist Rami El Aaser also currently plays with Sounds Of Taarab
