I first heard of Coconut Records when I found a free download of Microphone on Amie Street, a great independent music downloading site (http://amiestreet.com/) and fell in love with it. I found out that it was actually Jason Schwartzman, formerly of one of my other favorite west coast bands, Phantom Planet, brother of another one of my favorite west coast bands, Rooney. He has also starred in Marie Antoinette, The Darjeeling Limited, and I Heart Huckabees.
New singles have been filtering out ever since and have been consistently impressing me. I even bought West Coast from emusic (http://www.emusic.com/), another independent music site after I found it. Which trust me, purchasing a song is definite LIKE for me. I have to be insanely smitten to fork over the 99 cents for iTunes (and unable to find it cheaper anywhere else), and absolutely, head over heels in luuuurvvvv to buy an actual entire CD. Don't judge. I'm poor. The upside- if you give me some choice music? I'm your best friend for life.
Anyways: the point is, Coconut Records is bomb. Check it out. I've posted the new video for Any Fun featuring Chloe Sevigny below. I love the style. Black and white boho is chic.
