Show Preview: Junior Boys + Jessy Lanzy @ Mohawk (TONIGHT!)

juniorboysSo you thought that with SXSW your should could rest from all the music, but not so! There’s a great show over at Mohawk this evening, featuring some of the best purveyors of electronic music..all of whom hail from Canada. First, you have Junior Boys, who just released Big Black Coat; it’s a pretty special listen considering we had to wait five years. They’ll also be bringing with them their friends Jessy Lanza and Borys, all who’ve earned a name for themselves in their own right. it should be one of those nights where you can just let yourself go, and dance your way into the cool Spring evening. Grab tickets HERE all day, and bring your dancing shoes!

I Missed Junior Boys

atm-junior-boys1While I admit that I have a sparing interest in most electronic music, I’ve always had a fondness for Junior Boys. They’ve somehow managed to consistently create pop hooks within their songs that otherwise seem like dark cavernous tracks. It’s not an easy juxtaposition to pull off, but I feel like they’ve been able to continue their approach by dragging out songs beyond their expected time stamps; it allows for turns and folds, much like we find in this new jam. Finally we’ll get an entire new album from the duo; it’s titled Big Black Coat and is slated for a February release via City Slang.
