Junior Boys

Begone Dull Care (Domino)

comment

It has been over two years since the Hamilton duo released the internationally acclaimed So This Is Goodbye, and as can be expected, the expectations for Begone Dull Care are enormous. In comparison to their last two near-perfect releases, the Junior Boys' latest is merely a great album. Jeremy Greenspan's voice is as beautiful and melancholy as ever and the crunchy electronic grooves are even more moody and sprawling. Absent, however, are the great emotional crescendos that made for such stellar tracks on their last release. Regardless, when measured on its own virtue, Begone Dull Care is a great album.
