Junior Boys

February 22, 2007

Admittedly, I’m a little late catching on to the Junior Boys. It seems that the pop music made by Jeremy Greenspan (didn’t we go to medical school together?) has been wooing the collective hearts of indie-popsters for several years now.

The music is definitively cooler than Ben Gibbard and The Postal Service, and has considerably less guilt associated with it than rocking to Justin Timberlake or Beyonce, which again, admittedly occasionally needs to be done by anyone with some sort of pop sensibility.

The Junior Boys’ new record, So This is Goodbye, (which is not-so-new) scored a 9.0 on the Pitchfork scale and was apparently everyone’s favorite record of the year. (Have I been asleep at the wheel?) The record is not your standard Invisible fare, but nonetheless remains on the iTunes repeat.

Check out “In the Morning” below. It’s about to become your favorite song.
