Music 125: Coconut Records


A review on the band Coconut Records is way over due on Mix Tape. You may be asking yourself 'who is Coconut Records?', but I guarrantee you will be humming along to this artist's tunes after this.

Coconut Records is a band that consists only of the actor Jason Schwartzman (Bored to Death, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Darjeeling Limited, and Funny People to name a few).

Coconut Records started in 2006 and currently has two albums out. Of the two albums (Nighttiming and Davy), there have been many guests featured on his songs. Some of the collaberations have been with the band Incubus, Actress Kirsten Dunst, and Actress/Singer Zooey Deschanel.

Coconut Records music has been featured on the soundtrack for the show Bored to Death and the movies Funny People and Spider Man 3.

On to the actual listening part of this review, all of Coconut Record's songs are good but if I had to pick my top three they'd be:

1) West Coast (off the album Nighttiming)


2) St. Jerome (off the album Davy)


3) Microphone (off the album Davy)


Hopefully you've enjoyed this review on an artist I think everyone should listen to.

  1. West Coast has to be one of my favorites...and of course, Microphone. Yeap, I still can't get enough of Jason. Acting or his music.
