Taking one more lap after the finish line, Junior Boys are releasing the Kiss Me All Night EP to cap off their busiest year ever. In addition to releasing the critically acclaimed album Big Black Coat (City Slang Records) Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan also released the album Oh No with his collaborator Jessy Lanza (Hyperdub Records) and the But Wait There's More EP with Borys (Jiaolong Records).
Now, just in time for an extended US tour in September and October, as well as additional European dates, Junior Boys return with a brand new EP titled Kiss Me All Night. It starts with two extraordinary retro-futuristic club bangers "Yes“ and "Babyfat“ only to be outmaneuvered by the John Martyn Cover "Some People Are Crazy“ and rounded up by the Paisley Park infused title track "Kiss Me All Night”.
Like the end of a long race, it’s hard to come to complete stop, so after all of these projects were finished and realized, the compulsion to keep working and working remained. Kiss Me All Night is a kind of amalgam of all of the different projects. It combines the techno production technique of the Jiaolong work, the experimental pop of Jessy Lanza and the subtle fragility of Junior Boys' oldest material. Kiss Me All Night is a final kiss to the year that was.

perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
