adam buxton , he the man

new music...Coconut Records!

Coconut Records = Jason Schwartzman = actor = son of actress Talia Shire = nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, cousin of Nicolas Cage, Sofia Coppola = former drummer in Phantom many other things too i presume.

From what ive heard of Coconut Records , its far better that any of Phantom Planets output . Schwartzman has produced pop songs of the fun , breezy , light and catchy variety which reminds my ears of Brendan Bensons Lapalco record.

You can hear tracks from Coconut Records' new album, Davy right over here
