The Dufferin Jog (Album)

by Adult Future

“The Dufferin Jog” was a road detour located near the band’s studio in Toronto. For the band, it represented a metaphorical traversing to an extreme point, before one could correct itself and get back to the road upon which one belonged. This idea comes from Hegel’s dialectic of history in that humanity is naturally obliged to go to one extreme or another, before it can self-regulate and balance itself out onto a course of sustainable moderation. In other words, we need that detour: whether it’s Trump, anger or fear – all these sidesteps are necessary to make one realize that it needs to get worse before it gets better.
