Tracks: Bored Nothing - Let Down
For anyone new to Bored Nothing he's Australian multi-instrumentalist Fergus Miller and he creates some of the most outrageously lo-fi, melodic and brilliant music around. Earlier in the year we featured "Echo Room" from his debut self-titled LP and since then we've ran a bit dry, which is a bit shit considering he releases new stuff virtually all the time. It's hard to keep up though because there's not really a set pattern to Bored Nothing releases and videos etc.
Excuses aside, "Let Down" is sublime and the fact it's accompanying video, shot by Abteen Bagheri - think videos from A$AP Rocky and Blood Orange amongst others, perfectly captures the feel of the song and turns it from an already brilliant ethereal lo-fi pop gem, into something far more physical and, although for most Brits it will feel rather Americanised, it will strike some sort of childhood-crush-chord with almost everyone.
