Junior Boys’ New Album – Begone Dull Care – The Animator

This is the duo’s third album, and the title is a reference to a short film by Norman McLaren, the pioneering Oscar-winning animator and electronic composer, who was fond of direct film animation (the technique of physically manipulating or painting on film frame by frame) and stop-start animation. His meticulousness is much like the band’s process of composing and sequencing their music. There’s a measured restraint that’s rarely employed in modern pop music and it’s the precision and restraint in the arrangements that serves to magnify what is there. And what is there is exceptional.
