Some sweet California dreaming. For their new album Grains, the duo Boozoo Bajou have put together an organic, gentle take on the Laurel Canyon sound that influenced the making of the album. “We didn’t try to make an authentic West Coast album, it’s just that laidback California thing was in the back of our minds,” Florian explains. “It coloured the whole thing.” To highlight the reference points, see an inspiration mix below.
Grains will be released March 3rd on !K7 records. A single for "Same Sun" featuring mixes from Prins Thomas and Andy Votel will be released digitally on February 10th.
