Directed by Young Genius Julien Mercier and produced by Augenblick Studios in Brooklyn, the animated video compares the random days of two random guys. Quickly, we see that they’re different. “They don’t belong to the same song”, as the lyrics say. Everything surrounding them fits that paradigm. The attitude of one seemingly answers to a set of moral principles, while that of other appears amoral.
They both engage in and suffer from societal habits: consumption, violence, politeness, anxieties, punishment, rebellion, consciousness… However, the formal features of their respective universes start spilling over into one another. Their behaviors are therefore not dictated by a model, nor are they entirely the fruit of their own choosing. Rather, they are a consequence of their environment, and as such could be described as parametric. The ideologies with which the characters correlate are a way for them to structure their daily routine – the remaining question being: Why is it so damn important to own a digital alarm clock and an analog watch, instead of the opposite?

Jura, the sophomore full-length from the Swiss duo Larytta, is a galvanizing synthesis of essential grooves and effervescent melodies. It took years to finish the record!
The album is full of clever and tasteful references: Africa, the Middle East, the dusty Western 70s and “the white lines” 80s, all shine through at different points of this sonic journey. The production is chunky, juicy, warm and analog. The lyrics are witty and even sometimes downright funny. The song titles testify to this fact: Osama Obama, Love Love Banana, Broken Leg Theory, Les Bambous – come on!
