Fries instead of party anecdotes, Slowlife instead of Self Hate, Pop instead of Productivity.
“We Drown In Possibilities” is a key line on Slowlife, the new album from Jolly Goods. Across the span of ten songs, siblings Tanno Pippi and Angy Lord navigate an overload of possibilities to work, to date, to express themselves creatively, to communicate, even. Fatigue? Yes, but they do not fold under unfulfillable demands placed on others and themselves by everyday life – rather, they assert their right to opt out of the eternal social rat race („Eating Fries“) or to underscore the hollowness of workplace constructs (“50 Emails”). Jolly Goods have long recognized that diving down the rabbit hole of mindfulness workshops or purchasing slow-cookers won’t improve your existence. That’s not enough. It can’t be enough. The slow life must prevail, because this constant floundering within the tangled mesh of the meritocracy – it’s „sucking all the energy.“
