Banana Ripple

Junior Boys are a Canadian electronc duo who have been around forever (well, since the early 2000s), and released 3 albums to varying degrees of brilliance. Their latest album, It's All True is due June 14th on Domino Records. Banana Ripple is the first single off the album, and marks a slight departure from the norm for the group because…it isn't overwhelming melancholy. In fact, it's almost bouncy. Turns out melody can be deceiving though, as Junior Boys pointed out on their Twitter with the statement: "very pleased that people are enjoying 'banana ripple'….our 'summerjam' about emotional meltdown"
Is this what emotional meltdown is supposed to sound like? If so, sign me up.

Stream Banana Ripple here, and buy the album when it comes out at Domino.

And just in case you're missing that melancholy, download the classic In The Morning. It is quite possibly the sexiest song of all time, off their 2006 album So This Is Goodbye, which is probably the sexiest album of all time.
