Hollywood’s scrawny man in a boy’s profile (who’s still unable to grow modest body/facial hair) –known throughout the film industry as the infallible George-Michael Bluth, Paulie Bleeker and the slugger bassist Scott Pilgrim – passed out an unexpected 18-track joint yesterday via Bandcamp. He calls it true that, a collective of lo-fi folk cuts; predominately instrumentals speckled with Cera’s branded mumbling which shifts musically from piano clatter to bucolic acoustic recordings.
Superbad buddy Jonah Hill voiced a bit of free advertising yesterday evening in respects to Cera’s recent experiment, writing:
My great friend Michael Cera not only is a brilliant actor, he also makes great music. Check it out: michaelceramusic.bandcamp.com—

Cera has a history of straying into musical performance as he toured with indie supergroup Mister Heavenly in 2010 under the bassist role. He’s found his way into music videos, most notably for Island’s “No You Don’t”, which arrived the same year; and, granted, there’s also Sex Bob-omb. Yet, true that drives most of all from the novelty bedroom tunes him and Charlyne Yi spit out during their time filming Paper Heart (prime example shown below).
