Outside of Idlewild, Game Theory and The Outsider I was not ancipipating any release by any artist more than Junior Boys' So This is Goodbye. When a co-worker passed me their 2004 release Last Exit I became an immediate fan.

The first complete album made by vocalist Jeremy Greenspan without the aid of founding member and presumed rhythmic engine Johnny Dark, it finds the Boys (now rounded out by onetime engineer Matthew Didemus) working within comparatively streamlined song structures, the rhythmic capriciousness that so strongly informed their debut all but erased from the whiteboard. - Mark Pytlik, Pitchfork.

Mp3: Junior Boys - "Count Souvenirs"
Mp3: Junior Boys feat. Andi Tomi - "In The Morning"

"Count Souvenirs" is just one of the many hightlights that is featured on this sparce 10 track 49 minute record. When every track is quality its hard to find fault in such a short EP. I didn't think they could improve on Last Exit but I believe they did so with So This is Goodbye.

Pre-order the record here.

I was just clarifying that you didn't get the disc from Danalicious.
