When he’s composing songs for his electronic pop project, Aerialist, Virginia musician Lary Hoffman looks toward the sky. The songs on his latest album are named after moons in our solar system. Its cover art: a moon. Its title: Moon Patrol.
Outside of his music, Hoffman co-owns two bars that fit the theme: They’re called Galaxy Hut and Spacebar. (Disclosure: My husband works part-time at the latter.)
But for his latest release, Hoffman looked no further than his record collection. The song he recently posted on Bandcamp is called “Its Name Is Jonas.” Don’t get it? The serene and twinkling composition is a cover of Weezer’s “My Name Is Jonas,” renamed for the blizzard that buried much of the Eastern seaboard last weekend.
Consider making Aerialist’s “Its Name Is Jonas” the first track on your sidewalk-shoveling playlist.
