Videos: Jeffrey Lewis and the News

June 11, 2009

Musician and illustrator Jeffrey Lewis, who did the great cartoon, “My 2008 in a Nutshell,”  has a new video project, Jeffrey Lewis and the News (if you are under 25, the allusion is to this). The first segment of each video is a short, illustrated recap of the news, and the second is a musical performance with Jeffrey Lewis and musical guests. Of the three episodes up so far, my favourite is the  second episode, which features what I can only describe as an acoustic mashup of “Louie, Louie” and Pavement’s “Cut Your Hair.” You can check out all the videos so far, and subscribe to them as a podcast, here.

  1. This is likely the best news I’ll hear all day. LOLLLL For real though, I <3 Jeffrey.


    • Awesome!

      Jeffrey Lewis does the fabulous packaging design for their CDs. For the first time in – well, maybe ever – I decided against downloading their albums from eMusic in favour of buying the physical artifacts. Now I know (a bit) how you feel about vinyl. :)
