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 of 4 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 12 Jun 2007
Format: Audio CD
The Junior Boys have made a solid second album in "So This is Goodbye"... which hopefully isn't a bad omen. Because it would be a shame to quit when this electro-indie band is still making good music -- smooth dance beats and satiny vocals, with a heavy dose of chillout and downtempo.

It opens with a string of hiccupy blips, and soon a breathless voice murmurs, "You're two faced.../all sideways.../you're dry-eyed.../and night fly..." A funky rhythm kicks in, keeping the spare beats from sounding too dull, but it's still only an introduction.

The good stuff is with "The Equalizer," a solid beat that regularly softens those cold beats with stretches of shimmering downtempo. Then they change the same formula for "First Time," which is a pretty trip-hop sound that gets sprinkled with sharp computerized beats. Not catchy, just so you know.

That mix of sharp beats and downtempo continues as the album trips on. The melodies are fragile, the beats are robust -- they glide through the vaguely ominous "In the Morning," cascade through the bittersweet sound of "So This is Goodbye," and jerk through the robotic "Caught in a Wave." The ending song, "FM," is a surprisingly soft finale, with a very soft melody and those computer beats.

This particular version has a bonus disc, which includes their Itunes EP: four sparkling renditions of various, including the shimmery "FM," funky "Under the Sun," and haunting piano folk of "When No One Cares." They sound a bit different from the original songs, but it's so polished you wouldn't know that this was a live session.

And it's loaded down with some lovely remixes: "FM" gets a shimmy techno reworking, and a fuzzy airy one.

Breaking up is hard to do losing a lover and friend with whom you had an intuitive and intimate bond with is such a desperate experience.This album skilfully takes you through the gamut of emotions that you feel when a close relationship ends. It goes to all the places of heartbreak and darkness and sheer panic but somehow allows you to accept and acknowledge what you are going through in such a way that helps you heal. These songs help you come to terms with your fear as they let you touch the heartache at the centre of your sadness, it bites hard but somehow you have the strength to take it. I'm glad I bought this very truthfull and painfully honest album and I wholeheartedly recommend it. AS far as the bonus disc is concerned the item arrived with a small crack rendering both the Carl Craig and Hot Chip tracks virtually unplayable, the Tensnake one is good though and as I paid around £2 for it, I'm not complaining.

Junior Boys are in a league of their own, crafting gorgeous electronic music that is truly soulful. This CD was my perfect introduction to them, and it is almost criminal that they do not reach a wider audience.
