The OC for the Painfully Alone
Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, who I heard about last semester from a domestic exchange student, announced on his LiveJournal two days ago that his song, "Young Shields," will make an appearance on tonight's episode of The OC. Although it'll only be background music for one minute and fourteen seconds, Josh Schartz is always keeping up on the trends, you can't get much more emo-obscure than Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. Although releasing music since 1999, his latest album released earlier this year, Etiquette, is the only one to get any legitimate press. As would be expected, the music is dominated by keyboards and sadness, and Josh Schwartz apparently thinks it's excrutiatingly hip.
Here's the song...
