This week’s artist is called Coconut Records. Nope it’s NOT a compilation; it’s the musical alter ego of actor Jason Schwartzman. You might recognize his name from “Shop girl,” “I ♥ Huckabees,” “Rushmore” amongst others. BUT! He was also the drummer for the group Phantom Planet, and their biggest claim to fame is that they recorded the theme song for the TV show ‘The OC.’
Jason has recorded throughout his acting years, and a friend convinced him to release his work in 2007. First the record was just released on I-Tunes, but now Jason has released the record on his own Young Baby records.
I like it, it’s different and I urge anyone with any kind of musical curiosity to check it out.
