Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fodder or the deconstructionism of someone like Ziur. Rather, what we have here are intersections of Perfume Genius/How To Dress Well-style queer pop and the freighted maximalism you sometimes find bolting out of the LuckyMe stable.

8/10 Daoud Staff review, 30 October 2018

‘Club Dread’ is Justin Majetic’s first album as just, Majetic. Prior to this he went by CARE and performed with a band. This album then, is a striking step away from his previous work as ‘Club Dread’ consists of his voice and his electronics. The result is something intensely personal but also one that relies on the musical communities it’s a part of.

Majetic’s music lies in an all too forgotten sweat spot between being club influenced but not club ready. When I say that I don’t mean what Majetic’s doing is the same as when pop stars sing something over a house beat. Rather Majetic seems to be in a much tighter dialogue with the genre drawing on elements from current underground dance music as well as everything else. This results in tracks like ‘Horseback’ whose nightmarish chaos brings to mind some of SOPHIE’s more challenging productions. You can also see it ‘Covert Arms’ a track built around a bassline that is as unconcerned with seemed cool as Errorsmith’s latest.

Majetic’s vocals though, aren’t like anything you’d find in the contemporary club scene. HIs vocals are tender and yearning, or droll and knowing. The opening moments of the album feature him singing alone with the empathy of ANOHNI while ‘Simple Blade’ features the sort of monologue James Murphy has long mastered. Most moving though is ‘Rosemilk’s critique of police brutality on which Majetic proves the versatility of his voice by singing with just a guitar.
