One of my favorite records so far this year is actually an actor-turned singer, which usually spells disaster
but in this case spells y-a-y. Jason Schwartzman is Coconut Records
(see my previous post here
for all the specs) and his Nighttiming
album is irresistible. I've gotten this update I thought I'd share, for those of you who like to hold physical copies of your music:
Coconut Records is super-serving fans who want a physical copy of the record. A single pressing of 2,000 discs will each come with a one-of-a-kind, individual Polaroid of Jason. But the rest of the world is going to have to go digital . . . this is an indie rock digital success story.
[PS] Jason's brother Robert is about to release the new Rooney record. A good opportunity for an "if you like X you might like Y" promotion. For those of you working in digital music, "X" is Rooney and "Y" is Coconut Records. "X" can also be any other great record you love. "X" cannot be David Hasselhoff.
Order Nighttiming through Young Baby Records
, and while you're over there, check the new video for the song "West Coast" with skateboarding Germans. Doesn't get much better than that.
