Testarossa, the second-full length collaboration between Cohn and WHY?’s Yoni Wolf, credits the rapper as Serengeti. While swapping one stage name for another is not necessarily truth-telling, it’s implied that when compared to Kenny Dennis, Serengeti more closely approximates the feelings and experiences of David Cohn. But when Geti lets you into his own psyche, it’s through fractured narratives and half-truths, ill-advised blogging ventures and apocryphal trips to the hardware store. The last Geti/Yoni LP, 2011’s Family & Friends, was intermittently brilliant, but also unremittingly dark. (The standout song from that record, "The Whip," is a portrait of a retired UFC fighter trying desperately to get back in the octagon.) The sequel has fewer songs that are obvious conceptual departures, but finds Geti just as slippery, just as evasive.
