I stumbled into a free and legal download of Junior Boys amazing new single "In The Morning" and just had to share it. I enjoyed their "Last Exit" album, but nothing on it, even the fantastic "Birthday", grabbed me as quickly as "In The Morning" has. Not convinced by my taste? Then consult the holy book of hipsterdom:
Everything overlaps seamlessly-- the verse and the chorus blissfully interchangeable, all pushed forward by that rhythm-- up until around the three minute mark, when things swell to a sudden build and the Boys introduce a shrill firecracker synth riff that sounds like one of Lil JonÃ‚s, albeit pitched up and comically excited. As simple sonic moments go, its one of the most thrilling youÃ‚ll hear this year. As for the track, same-- five minutes rarely rush by this quickly.
: Pitchfork reports that Junior Boys album "So This Is Goodbye" is out on the improbable August 17th (which is a Thursday).
