Song Of The Day: Junior Boys return with dance-ready 'Banana Ripple'
Junior Boys have always pumped out cold house grooves and ambient electro-pop to help you melt into a couch (or, ehm, bed). With the Canadians' forthcoming new set, they clearly want to melt with you.
"It's All True," due June 14 on Domino, features "Banana Ripple," nine minutes of breathtaking ambient, new wave and dance-friendly tunage. It's also an archive of pop cultural minutae, too, if you just pay attention.
The single will be released on 12" on May 31, with a remix by The Field as B-Side.
