Senior Enjoyment - Junior Boys
The Junior Boys make interesting music. A low write-up by any means, but that's how it is. They were once famously described as: "the greatest band you've never heard." - Not bad for a duo making semi-ambient, cold and melancholic electronica.

Hailing from Canada, the duo have toured their last album Last Exit around the world and I was lucky enough to met them at their last visit in Denmark a couple of years ago, when they played at Rust. Surprisingly friendly and a bit shy, they were hoping the Roskilde Festival booker in the crowd would like them. Apparently he/she didn't, which was a loss.

Now they are ready to hit the world again, hopefully becomming more than just the greatest unknown band. Their new album So This Is Goodbye will be released sometime soon, come early fall at latest on the Domino label.
The fact that I'm mentioning the album is also a point in itself. These guys are one of the few electronic acts who actually make whole albums worth listening to (Or at least one, until now).

And now the tunes:

First song is first track of their new album Double Shadow, a brilliant bass-ladden lumbering giant. Sounding a bit like a left out gem from the Booka Shade album this could be great with a few nob twiddles from the right remixer. If this song is anything to go by, I think this album could blast the Junior Boys into popular mainstream - at least the cool part of it!

Second song is a workout from Morgan Geist on the track The Equaliser. Adding a discofeel to the boys, Geist turns this into a slow creeping dancefloor assasin. The quality of Geist's remix is that he finds and underlines the link between The Junior Boys and The Knife. Something which becomes obvious when hearing this bass filled remix.
