Check out Jonathan Coulton's video for "Nemeses," feat. The Long Winters' John Roderick. Because you can never just have one nemesis!
Why do we like Jonathan Coulton? He speaks to the outcast in all of us, in the voices of characters we know from our own sad little lives. Some of them may be monsters - mad scientists, giant squids, zombies - but his talent is in turning offbeat subjects into deliciously hooky pop songs that move us in surprisingly personal ways. His new album, Artificial Heart, produced by John Flansburgh of They Might Be Giants, was released on Nov. 8, on Jocoserious Records. It's a new direction for Coulton, as he leaves behind the home recording gear for a studio filled with talented musicians and guest vocalists including Suzanne Vega, John Roderick of The Long Winters and Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara.
Coulton's first single "Nemeses" is a duet between himself and The Long Winters' John Roderick that suggests the only real way to bring meaning into your life is to find your own worst enemy! That's a search we never get tired of.
