Biography

Their music has drawn variously from disco, electro-pop, UK garage, R&B—and Frank Sinatra. They bear traces of Munich, London, Chicago, Virginia Beach, Tin Pan Alley—and yet they hail from Hamilton, Ontario. They are men of the world, but you can call them Junior Boys.

The men in question, of course, are Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus, and their story is an unlikely ... Read more in Amazon's Junior Boys Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Subtle, emotive electro-pop 25 Jun 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You may find yourself slightly perplexed after the first listen of this album given the collective orgasm seemingly experienced by the music press about Last Exit. It is, however, a subtle, gentle grower. The missing link between Underworld, Talk Talk and New Order, it places delicate, slightly Indie vocal melodies over Timbaland-esque two-step electro rhythms. It is not just a retro gimmick this, though, and there is great tension between the barely-audiable vocals and stabbing basslines and skittering beats. In my opinion the latter half of the album works much better, with tracks like 'Three Words' and 'Teach Me How to Fight' lingering languidly - dream-like - in the imagination. Despite the pop sensibilities the music is allowed space to breath, to wallow in its own, sometimes minimal and lonely mood. It is this unusual, gentle approach that places them above the many other acts currently influenced by 80s synth bands and also sets them apart from their influences. Furthermore, 'Birthday' - which featured on a preceding EP - is a downbeat pop gem that has that resounding, almost nostalgic quality of sounding like you've heard it before. Part Terry Hall, part Joy Division, it is a sombre bed-sit classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last Exit 14 July 2011

Mellow and chilled out electro pop which gets better with each play. Too young is my favourite track. Well worth a listen.
