Coconut Records
From what I know, Jason Schwartzman composes all the music and sings all the songs.The song "West Coast" was on the last episode of The OC.


Have a listen, he's very good: http://www.myspace.com/coconutrecords

Jason Schwartzman unveiled his solo project, Coconut Records, earlier this month, and he's posted three songs from the upcoming album on his myspace page. It's the same kind of sunny SoCal pop from his Phantom Planet days, but even tighter and catchier, especially "West Coast."

His myspace page has been blowing up (36,000 hits and counting) since a message about Coconut went out to the Weezer faithful. Dave, a =W= die-hard, tipped me off and said Coconut Records' friends doubled in a day. They include: The Strokes, The Shins, Ratatat, Of Montreal, Phantom Planet, Weezer, Rooney, Phoenix, Kings of Leon...

Actor. Coppola nephew. Co-writer on the next Wes Anderson movie. Ex-drummer for the band whose song got picked to be the theme for "The O.C." Now solo artist -- and one certainly worth checking out.

Would someone like to upload the album?

I wonder if he goes by Coconut Records or his name? : /

I just listened to the entire album and it's fantastic. It's got a really catchy feel, reminsicent of Phantom Planet, and even sort of like Phoenix (even though anyone who knows the Coppola family could figure out why ). I'm sort of biased, though, since I love anything Schwartzman does. I'd feel sort of bad uploading the entire album, but here's the song that I'm listening to right now!

I'm having a tough time trying to hold off buying it from itunes, but it's supposed to be released in stores this summer and I'm like "man what if I buy it off itunes and then the album art is neato, I miss out on that." decisions, decisions.

I really, really love it! "It's Not You, It's Me" and "West Coast" (haven't heard it before, not even with the OC) instantly became my favorites on first listen.
