Video Premiere: Boozoo Bajou "Jan Mayen"
- Words: James Eaton
Of the myriad releases being issued by R&S sub-label Apollo as of late, Boozoo Bajou's Jan Mayen EP (out now) is easily one of the most atmospheric and wistful, relying mostly on spacious soundscapes and airy hints of rhythm. The title track from the German duo's latest record sets that tone from the start, and the animated clip which has been paired with the billowing music somehow manages to fit the sounds to a tee. Nebulous blobs of color, jittery lines, speckled orbs, and all other sorts of shapes and doodles create a kind of microcosm around Boozoo Bajou's loose instrumentation, wafting melodies, and field recording of a crackling fire. It all works together perfectly with the wispy character of "Jan Mayen."
