Album of the Day: Jed Whedon

 

If there’s one thing I love it’s a good album. One where you can listen to the whole thing through without having to skip songs. That doesn’t tend to happen often, though.

Lucky for you [yes, you!] I’ve decided to share an album I know I can listen to and just let it play out!

Jed Whedon is also known as ‘Joss Whedon’s brother’. If you don’t know who Joss Whedon is you can either google him or you can wait a for weeks for me to compile my thoughts on the man who changed my life [I mean, no biggie].

Jed is a screenwriter and a musician having co-created Dr Horrible’s Sing-along Blog, been a writer on Dollhouse and, most recently noted, a writer on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

As much as I admire these things I LOVE the album he released ‘History of Forgotten Things’ [under the artist name Jed Whedon and the Willing]. Never before has an album resonated with me like this one. It’s one of those go-to sound experiences I crave every so often so I figured I’d link the SOUND CLOUD .

My favourites, if I had to pick, are Interstate, Tricks on Me, Drones, Last Man and Heat of a Match. Each is a great showcase of great lyricism and interesting musical tones. He plays with conventional chords by adding jarring notes which I happen to appreciate a lot. It’s melancholy with a twist of whimsy.

Added bonus; if you do happen to enjoy his music check out the track (via any music selling outlet) by him and his wife, Marrisa Tancharoen called Remains because WOW.
