Last Exit (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Sep 21, 2004; Lead Performance: Junior Boys

Supple, stylish electro-pop so cool it makes glaciers jealous. The instrumentation -- R2-D2 blips, hiccupy bleeps, syncopated synths -- is strictly digital, but there's real analog longing in vocalist Jeremy Greenspan's tender, breathy refrains. Culled partly from two EPs released over the last year the Canadian duo's full-length debut, Last Exit, is both prettily nostalgic (think New Order, Erasure, Bronski Beat) and gloriously right now.
