The Junior Boys channel senior citizens to create future sounds

His voice is front and center more often and more assuredly within his own vast, spare arrangements. It's no wonder a kindred neodisco spirit such as Metro Area's Morgan Geist has recently called on him for vocals. "I think for modern bands of all descriptions, the tendency is to push the vocal as another instrument in the mix," Greenspan observes. "But with [So This Is Goodbye], I had more confidence. Listening to crooner records, I noticed how present the vocals can be, so I kept pushing my own voice louder and louder while mixing." Subtly rising up out of the past and away from loss — that's the current sound, and the voice, of the Junior Boys. *
