Love Is Making Its Way Back Home

by Jillian Douglas

A fabulous, fabulous song by Josh Ritter set to an even more fabulous music video… made with over 12,000 pieces of construction paper. You must watch (and hear)!

“Love is Making Its Way Back Home” is a single off of Ritter’s new album, Bringing in the Darlings, which came out yesterday. In addition to this, he set up an Etsy shop featuring screenprint posters of frames from the video!

I can’t wait to hear more of Ritter’s new album… I bet the indie world is giddy about this one!

Coconut Records

by Jillian Douglas

If there is anything Ashley and I frequently disagree on, it’s music. You might have read about it here. It’s a constant struggle between the preppy pop (Ashley) and the weird alternative (me). The few artists we both admire are held sacred in the JJ&Good Treasury of Good Music. They are quite rare.

In saying that, I have no idea how she’s going to react to this gem of musical bliss I found on the interwebs today: Jason Schwartzman’s personal project, Coconut Records.

Who’s that guy, you ask? He starred as Gideon in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and Ash in Fantastic Mr. Fox, two of my favorite movies (ohmygosh,they’resogood;stopwhatyou’redoingandwatchthemrightnow). He’s pretty famous. You should google him).

Coconut Records’ music is eclectic but mostly technopop with obscure lyrics that don’t always make sense (as is with every other indie band. hehe). His videos are even better… check this one out!

Tee hee. I love it. I love it so much.
