My favorite albums by people who have also been in front of a camera.
  1. Leighton Meester - "Heartstrings"
    4be7ad1b 57c7 4c49 b77b e29df32fdb57
    If you've never listened to this amazing piece of art, please do. With the voice of an angel over complex melodies you'll think you died and went to heaven. It's intense and ambient and just so fucking brilliant and worth at least 5 straight through listens.
  2. Michael Pitt/Pagoda - "Pagoda"
    88d51932 8344 44be bcb9 ed894ed3ebfa
    After a very rich love affair with Boardwalk Empire I sussed out more information so I could watch more things he was in and was somewhat intrigued and pleasantly surprised by this. Very Nirvana-esque, which is not really THAT surprising but still, I definitely enjoyed it.
  3. Alanis Morissette - "Jagged Little Pill"
    01c0fdc8 fd76 438b adc2 1156229d9ee5
    Ok, the ONE show I wasn't allowed to watch as a kid was "You can't do that on Television". Little beknownst to many, Alanis was actually on that show, therefore making her a candidate for this list because... Reasons I could go on for forever being because she is the angsty voice of my youth and then the soft voice years after.
  4. Anthony/Tony Perkins - "The Prettiest Girl in School"
    A8a0825c 8ede 413c 87e5 f8dc484f5065
    Best known for his role as the infamous Norman Bates, Tony owns the microphone. If you're into this kind of Chet Baker kind of thing, your heart will burst for Tony's voice. I can't even describe to you how much I love it, it's my "feel better" music.
  5. Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen - "I am the Cute One"
    433b8183 86c2 4745 9bfa 730be7ab2fef
    My childhood. I was obsessed. My sister and I would pretend to be them and we'd sing and act out every video because we knew them by heart. They released two albums (that I know of) and both were copied for me by a really good friend and I listened to the fuck out of them. Still would.
  6. Donald Glover/Childish Gambino - "Because The Internet"
    2b052c59 c985 4166 9b32 d96b51a55522
    Uhhhhhhhh.... yes. One of my favorite albums of 2013. Has officially gone down as one of my favorite rap albums of all time. He's soft and then hard and it goes through so many ups and downs between sick fucking rhythms.
  7. Steve Martin - "Love Has Come for You"
    A1a25ef1 d830 4111 afc4 7bb786a1808b
    Not many people are aware of the amazingness that is Steve's banjo playing. I grew up listening to my grandma's blue grass band so anyone who can pick and twang instantly gets a gold star from me. If you can handle it, I think you should give it a listen.
