We've long become accustomed to laughing at "actors who sing" -- from Kevin Bacon to Scarlett Johansson, they've made it easy for us. Still, there is hope for the modern renaissance man: stars like Zooey Deschanel have proven that sometimes the music transcends the persona.
Enter Adam Goldberg's new project, LANDy. The actor/filmmaker (you may remember him from 2 Days in Paris and more notably, Dazed and Confused) worked with Earlimart's Aaron Espinoza as producer on his first musical venture, and the result is a melodic, piano-centric indie pop pairing. The first track from the forthcoming album Eros and Omissions (out April 21) is a dark little number that builds from simple basic sounds to an orchestral swirl. The rest of the album features contributions by Espinoza, the ubiquitous Steven Drodz, and members of Black Pine, all indicators that Goldberg is taking his musical turn quite seriously -- and perhaps so should we.
