Just Add Brion

Well known in music circles, multi-instrumentalist and composer Jon Brion has been killing it for many years with his quirky sounds and pop sensibilities. He is best known for adding his genius to other peoples music and films, having scored the soundtracks for films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Punch Drunk Love and I Heart Huckabees and produced albums for artists like Fiona Apple, Aimee Mann and Kanye West.

I dare say his instrumental touches on virtually every track of Kanye's album 'Late Registration' put that album over the top. Similarly his soundtracks add depth and feeling to the films they are put to. He has a real knack for recreating the nostalgia of the 'good old days' of pop music. This rare song as a performing artist from the 'Punch, Drunk, Love' soundtrack showcases his songwriting talents perfectly.

If you're ever in L.A. you can catch him at his weekly residences at the improvisation club Largos (or see the man in action on several instruments here) otherwise we'll just have to wait eagerly for his next golden collaboration.

Dude has produced both an Elliott Smith album and a Kanye album.

That's amazing.
