Basement Jaxx have just released the video for "Mermaid of Salinas" and it is sure strange. The British electronica duo are coming out with their 7th studio album, Junto, on August 25th. You can pre-order the deluxe edition, which will feature 26 songs, on iTunes.
The Alan Masferrer-directed video is both weird and funny. There's a frisbee and a mermaid. Not really sure what one could ask for beyond that. At points, Masferrer speeds up and slows down the motion of the characters to the beat of the song. The result is a very trippy and entertaining video.
Basement Jaxx do an excellent job of making lighthearted electronic dance music. Their songs almost always have positive vibes. Some EDM can be too intense for dancing, but Basement Jaxx make their records groovy and fun.
