Top Tune of the Week

Week of February 29, 2012

Jon Brion - Knock Yourself Out

Today’s Top Tune is a song most will know from David O. Russell’s “existential comedy” I ♥ Huckabees. Huckabees was, of course, scored by Jon Brion – and he contributed this song to soundtrack of the film, which featured a incredible ensemble cast including Dustin Hoffman, Lily Tomlin, Jude Law, Naomi Watts and Mark Walhberg.

In addition to I ♥ Huckabees, Jon’s film scoring credits include Hard Eight, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Break-Up, Synecdoche, New York, Step Brothers, Glago’s Guest, The Other Guys, The Future, and two films scheduled for release this year: the 3D stop-motion animated comedy thriller adventure ParaNorman, and Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up “sequel” This Is Forty.

On the “pop” side of his career, Jon has worked as a writer and/or producer for the diverse likes of Fiona Apple, Kanye West, Aimee Mann, Katy Perry, Rufus Wainwright, Elliott Smith, Spoon, Best Coast, Of Montreal, Dido, and Keane, to name but a few. His semi-regular gigs at his LA home Largo at the Coronet remain consistent sellouts – his next performance is set for March 30. If you live in or are visiting the LA area, come down and see why these shows have become the stuff of legend.
