Olivia, And Other Gorgeous Tunes From Metafilter Musician chococat

Metafilter Music launched several years ago as a place for musicians on the site to share and discuss their own recorded work, and Mefi community members have posted several thousand songs since then.

Olivia is one of the earliest songs posted, way back in mid-2006; it's a wonderful tune by a mefite named chococat, one of my all-time favorite contributors to Metafilter Music. His songs have a consistent warmth and charm to them, with great lyrics, gorgeous vocal harmonies, and really admirably solid mixing and production.

He's posted dozens of songs over the last several years, and you can listen to them all here; a couple of my personal favorites include Kevin Is Lonely (from his recent album-in-a-month Cake Dome) and what is unquestionably my favorite ever cover of the Elvis Costello tune Watching the Detectives.
