Unlike their more gaudy, bling ridden counterparts, Junk Science trade synthesizers and catchy dance hooks for a more organic, lo-fi sound. What the rhymes lack in material goods, they make up for in swagger and wit. Baje One focuses on the woes of regular folks with regular problems. You don’t hear anyone on the radio talking about bounced checks or the frustration of having a college degree and no health insurance. Hate your crappy low-wage paying job? Quit by using the helpful 10-step program outlined in “Jerry McGuire.” Baje One understands your struggle and is perhaps the only lyricist brave enough to explore the world of a broke JV high school basketball coach.
Complete with tambourines, organ notes, simple drum loops, and Baje One’s sedate tone, Junk Science isn’t exactly club fare and Gran’dad’s Nerve Tonic isn’t your ordinary beer. Please drink responsibly.
