I talk outloud like you're still around

I had heard something about Jason Schwartzman having a band or something but not until this weekend did I actually hear any of it. You know, actors’ side bands are usually a tad less than whelming. Easy to miss.

While not all of his “Nightiming” album is necessarily amazing, this one song’s been kinda stuck all up in my headspace for at least three days now. It’s called “West Coast.” Give it a couple spins and you’ll see what I mean.

The video is made up of edits of a Mark Gonzales skateboarding video where he went and skated around a German museum. Somehow it’s oddly compelling and really works well. Somehow. And he’s wearing a fencing get-up.

You’ll know you’re in the good part of the tune when he starts kicking it in slow-mo. And keep an eye out for the kick turn he throws right on cue.

Dope.

is this an old Phantom Planet song or a new project of his? Phantom Planet was kind of weak if you ask me. No matter what people who watched the O.C say.
