About Coconut Records
Coconut Records is Jason Schwartzman. Yep, that would be the actor best known for his roles in Wes Anderson flicks like Rushmore and The Darjeeling Limited. But even before making it in Hollywood, Schwartzman was the drummer and songwriter for California indie band Phantom Planet. Forming a one-man-band was therefore a natural transition for the budding performer. As Coconut Records, he brings a similar carefree stoicism that has made his characters on screen thrive. Influenced by '60s Beach Boys, the Beatles and modern West Coast indie popsters like Weezer, Schwartzman plays nearly every instrument on his self-written and -recorded 2007 debut Nighttiming. He followed it up with by 2009's Davy.
