CARE is the deconstructive pop project of Justin Majetich and collaborators. LUV IN THE RUINS - the artist's third release and their second with Winspear - is now available on cassette and digital formats. CARE is based in New York City.
Four of the five tracks on Part One of the album rest at or extend past the 7-minute mark, and each one justifies its length. Majetich fills that vast space with textures that are as wide-ranging and volatile as the emotions he’s attempting to work through, and the way he processes the end of a relationship feels brazen and painful.
This kind of melodramatic, genre-absorptive oversharing is probably emo’s future.
“You Hallucinate” is...a mystifying, staggering pop song that leaps between sprawling instrumental runs and the scorched, impassioned lead vocal that heads the whole thing through this often wild journey.
