Pogo, the Australian producer of “Alice” fame, has returned to YouTube with “Gardyn”. While Pogo famously mashed up tunes and clips from various movies (and made music videos out of equally mashed up scenes from those movies), this time he has decided to build a track completely from scratch. Recorded using sounds captured in his own backyard, the song and video prove that Pogo is more than capable of channeling his distinctive style with elements other than singing Disney characters. It also shows that he lives in a pretty awesome house, and that chopped-up scenes of his mother singing in a garden may be just as trippy as any compendium of scenes from Mary Poppins.
