Jonathon Boulet- Homage to a Xylophone

 

Jonathon Boulet, “This Song Is Called Ragged”

We Keep The Beat, Found The Sound, See The Need, Start The Heart

2012, (Modular Recordings)


Sydney artist Jonathon Boulet’s single from his second album is a gleeful homage to the xylophone- a joyous riot through jumping percussion and yelled harmonies.

After recording his debut in a garage playing every instrument himself, the lo fi sound has been brushed aside as Boulet explores the world of percussion. The xylophone is thrust centre stage, sculpting out a hook whilst the drums hop and skip along behind.

Boulet’s calm voice shines through in the harmonies, but he can barely rise above the jungle jam below.
