Junior Boys' new record, It's All True, is set for release on June 14th (Domino), and the Ontario, Canada electro-pop duo have themselves an epic lead single in the deliciously titled "Banana Ripple." A nine minute rhythm and blues synth-groove behemoth, "Banana Ripple" will have your head bopping and your body poppin' and lockin'. The track is lengthy to be sure, but it is also refined and self-contained. No beat, blip, or lyric seems out of place or unnecessary. Every second is pure entertainment as the track arcs and peaks ever so slightly and then brings us back down ever so gently.
Un-peel "Banana Ripple" below. Pick up It's All True on June 14th.
