The Hazey Janes – All Is Forgotten (Armellodie Records)

a0212702627_10‘All Is Forgotten’ is the second single to be taken from The Hazey Janes’ fourth album, the quite outstanding Language of Faint Theory (reviewed here in June of this year). Like the record from which it is taken, ‘All Is Forgotten’ is firmly steeped in the past. The warmth and subtlety of its simple melody belongs in an earlier time, an age of innocence that is further revealed through the song’s gentle and blissful harmonies.

The accompanying video – a grainy, often blurred assemblage of vintage home movie footage, snapshots of family holidays and moments of abstract surrealism – captures on film all of those reminiscences that would surely have otherwise gone astray. As sound and vision coalesce, ‘All Is Forgotten’ is another nostalgic lyrical canvas upon which the art of Dundee’s finest has been beautifully created.

‘All is Forgotten’ was made available here on 10th September 2014 through Armellodie Records  as a pay-whatever-you-like download.

The download features two remixes: one of ‘The Fathom Line’, the first single to be taken from Language of Faint Theory, and the other of ‘Iwan’, the recording of which on some ¼” tape is still shrouded in complete mystery after it was anonymously left on The Hazey Janes’ doorstep wrapped in some brown paper.

Like ‘All Is Forgotten’ before them, both of these remixes will have video accompaniments, and all three will have been premièred by the end of this week.
