Junior Blue - Junior Blue
By Neil HavertyThese days, it seems the members of Broken Social Scene can do no wrong. Critical darlings actually worthy of the attention theyve received, it seems everything they touch lately is absolute gold. Junior Blue, the deformed brainchild of BSSs Justin Peroff and By Divine Rights Dylan Hudecki, provides even more proof that theres genius coming from every corner of this tight-knit Toronto collective. Similarly tapping a huge pool of musicians to create one consistent record, Junior Blue get equally great results with far less structure than BSS. The result is a very strange sound document filled with fucked up noises, sneakily produced drum tracks and very little actual songwriting in sight. Exploring every frequency range and combination of tone and pitch they come across, Hudecki and Peroff have orchestrated a wicked sound collage totally devoid of hooks and accessible, repeating parts. This record probably isnt for everybody but if you like drug records as much as I do, youll do your chronic self a favour and save a little bit of your reserve money for this.
