Cosmo Jarvis

It's well established that I'm a sucker for ukuleles, so it should come as no surprise that I'm posting this spunky track from Cosmo Jarvis, a lad born in New Jersey in 1990 and raised in England. In the UK he hung out with the skater crowd, creating all sorts of ruckuses and probably driving his father nuts with his "Jackass"-type video stunts, until the day when future label boss Mark Jones threw a guitar into his hands in an effort to help him channel his energies elsewhere. Roughly 250 songs later, Cosmo finally released his self-titled debut in November. Full of crazy energy, Cosmo's songs are wonderfully waggish, with titles like "Jessica Alba's Number" and "Sonofabitch." That fact alone is worth at least a listen to the track below.
