Junclassic – Long Days and Short Lives (2022)
This album explores vivid memories of yesterday. It conjures the nostalgia of innnocence found and lost. It explores the joys of youthful camaraderie and the painful circumstance of losing friends and loved ones to betrayal, poor health choices, violence and ultimately, time. It questions the pursuit of happiness and the crippling anxiety that often accompany the fear of failure. It revels in the bliss of recreational marijuana as well as the comprehensive empowerment of Black Love. These poetic diatribes are backed by soulful, emotive production from a variety of extraordinary sound scientists who create a world where the drums snap, boom and bap while the bass rattles below and colorful, sampled arrangements bounce atop the thump, coalescing into a particularly moody atmosphere. Long Days and Short Lives speaks to the resilience necessary to get through the long days. It also reflects the cruel reality where it doesn’t take much to turn all of these long days into a short life.
