You can hear the first new Brynovsky tune for a few years right now. It is actually a work of words by the uniquely psychedelic poet Ju Ju, set to music in Brynovsky style.
Ju Ju performed Blue Budgie as an unaccompanied spoken-word piece at a festival in a tiny venue and Tim was bowled over by the story it told. Some illustrious artists and personalities who were also present, in low-key fashion, were also stunned by its brilliance. It is a true story, so real that it’s surreal, in fact, Tim and Ju Ju often call it a ‘real surreal’ poem. Thinking about it, most of Ju Ju’s work, yet to be published, is also ‘Real Surreal’. Put that in your blog and post it.
A-n-y-w-a-y, Brynovsky and Ju Ju liked the resulting track so much that they decided to make a video reflecting the ambiguous moral of the tale which could go something along the lines of: when you’re hitching and somebody stops, it don’t mean you’re gonna get a lift. “But where does the budgie come in?” I hear you grumble. Well, you’ll have to listen to the track or watch the delightfully DIY lyric video representation of it that we made.
Blue Budgie (Feat. Ju Ju) is a standalone track which doesn’t appear on our upcoming LP, Future Weather. But we didn’t want it to get left behind and, in our hubris, thought the world might be a very slightly better place if people were able to hear it. You can download on a ‘pay what you like’ basis from Bandcamp, watch the video on YouTube or listen on Soundcloud.
