Published Jun 06, 2011Charmingly slick Hamilton, ON electro-pop duo Junior Boys have had a special place in our hearts since first winning us over on their 2004 debut, Last Exit. Since then, they've rarely taken a misstep, which is why we're so excited to hear their fourth album, It's All True.
The record will be available on June 14 via Domino Records, but until then we've arranged a free steam of the album right here for the next week in Canada. To hear the album in the U.S., simply click here to check it out on Hype Machine, who have also lent us the player below.
It's All True was recorded all around the world, including stints in Hamilton, Berlin and Shanghai. The group's time spent in China had a major impact on the final product, as Junior Boy Jeremy Greenspan was living there when he first started writing and recording the record. There are even eight musicians from Shanghai on album opener "Itchy Fingers."
Aside from the influential locale, however, It's All True is less a reinvention and more a refinement of Junior Boys' increasingly clean, immaculately produced work. It's starting to feel like Junior Boys could keep making timeless dance pop forever.
It's All True will be streaming on Exclaim.ca until June 12 in Canada.
