Many of you know Jason Schwartzman the actor, some of you know him as the ex-drummer of the now defunct Phantom Planet, some geek out over the fact that he’s Adrian’s (Talia Shire) son, while others may know him for his latest musical endeavor, Coconut Records.
(left: Schwartzman, not just an actor, not just a drummer, apparently he’s doing it all.)
Speaking of the latter, Schwartzman recently finished Coconut Records’ second offering, an album called Davy, which is currently being streamed in its entirety on the act’s MySpace page.
Although Schwartzman (from the best of my knowledge) handles most of the vocal and instrumentation on the album, Coconut Records’ list of previous collaborators includes Mike Eizinger and Brandon Boyd from Incubus, Zooey Deschanel (She & Him), and his brother Robert Carmine, lead singer of the band Rooney.
I’d love to find out who else worked with Schartzman on Davy. If he did most of the album himself (as suggested on his MySpace page), I’m completely blown away. It’s grade-A, indie-pop music.
