Junior Boys | WIG178 | Released: 11/09/06

Having torn up the rule-book with the robotic, hypnotic blue eyed soul meets R&B of their critically acclaimed debut 'Last Exit', Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus return with So This is Goodbye on Domino Records. The former featured influences from Timbaland's hiccuping hip-hop, John Foxx's pop noir and 2-step's chirruping pitched-up vocals and deep digital bass. The songs blended rhythmic psychedelia and glacial Foxxoid electronics with a late-night voice weakened by vulnerability and longing.

So This is Goodbye sees an elevation in the scale of Junior Boys' Pop ambitions, best seen as the pioneers of a New MOR rather than another attempt at New Pop. Junior Boys' songs have always had more in common with the likes of - Hall and Oates, The Blue Nile, Lindsay Buckingham. House references are everywhere: the title track bears echoes of classic Mr. Fingers, and it's not only the arpeggiated synth which drives many of the tracks that is reminiscent of Jamie Principle. So This is Goodbye is like house music if it had started in the wilds of Canada rather the clubs of Chicago.
