Under the moniker Cheeto FOol, Jonathan Aseron writes pop songs about girls, dreams, loneliness, and longing. Using an 8-track, guitar, and synthesizer, Jonathan records at home in South Austin. Most of his songs are guitar-based; a combination of acoustic sounds with layered synth and electronic percussion. The musical arrangements are made up of simple melodic riffs that feed off of laid back but emotionally charged vocals. With a distinct pop sensibility and an ear towards song craft, Cheeto FOol’s music feels immediate and warm. His influences include Grandaddy, Magnetic Fields, and the Flaming Lips to name a few.
