There is a light sense of wordplay in these tunes that extends to the way other songs' names ("Sarah Rain," "Rain in Sahara," "Hell O Hello") play off of the CD-R's titles and each other.
It was T-shirt weather the night Coconut played music at a release party for Bill (Gallery 16 Editions, 45 pages, $25), a collaboration between Jacobsen and the poet-essayist Bill Berkson. Sunlight beamed through the open windows. After playing a set of songs from and beyond Rain/Cocoanut/Hello Fruity, the duo was joined by Berkson. He read a line from the book, and they punctuated it with a brief blast of rhythm or a touch of acoustics. When he reached the end of the poem, it wasn't the end of the performance Coconut's music keeps dancing in and out of San Francisco, and its words and pictures.
