Sexual harassment. Panda! That was a South Park reference. Tee hee. This photo is part of a Zoo series for one of my favorite photography websites, The Big Picture. Anyways, I have finally finished the mixtape I have been meaning to get out with all the stuff I have been obsessed with for the past three hectic months. Some of the artists I have already reviewed, some of them I will end up doing a more in depth review on AtM, and some I am not! This will also be posted on Ca Va Cool, another fantastic music blog I contribute to, but I figured I’d give you guys a  sneak peek. This mixtape is almost a week old now, but it’s all be zipped up so I couldn’t make the changes I would have by now. Oh well, it still rocks! Go after the jump to see my to-be-posted post for CVC!

Ok so as you guys know I have been a lazy ass and haven’t made any posts in April ’cause of final exams, graduation, celebrating, and yada yada yada. I’ll be doing super super quick reviews (like seriously under 100 words probsies) on Yeah Yeah Yeah’s It’s Blitz!, Boy Least Likely To’s Law of the Playground, Camera Obscura’s My Maudlin Career, and Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. Short and sweet just ’cause these bands have been blogged about like crazy for the past little while already and I’d rather cover albums that have had less attention more specifically. Plus, there’ll be a quick recap of two shows I went to, Mother Mother and Junior Boys. All after the jump!

Mixtape - It's Not You, It's Me
So I’ve compiled a mixtape over at the other blog (cavacool) I contribute to. It’s composed of a few artists that I’ve already discussed here at ATM and a few I have yet to delve into. Overall, it’s 28 tracks of French electro/indie pop, Spanish dream pop, hip hop trip hop, d’n’b r’n’b, house, dance, nujazzz…you name it and at least one of the featured artist covers it in some way! It’s a great listen so click on the mixtape to see the full track list! Thanks =)

Junior Boys are a Canadian indie electronic pop band from Hamilton, Ontario consisting of Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus. They’ve released Last Exit back in 2004 and the critically acclaimed, and IMO, one of the best Canadian albums of the decade, So This is Goodbye in 2006. Their sound is smooth, and ambient. It’s elegant rich pop and refurbished synths. Greenspan’s voice lulls you into a conscious sleep, it’s a voice that sooths the complexities of your day. It’s a voice for those late nights. Junior Boys is late night music. It is top floor sky scraper overlooking the night music. It is being a night rider with the windows down arms out fingers outstretched on empty yet vibrantly lit streets. The rhythms are mixtures of contemporary and 80’s that entrance and hypnotize you into that dream state where you’re still lucid but drifting off, conscious yet vulnerable, reflective yet dulled, calm yet anxious; x and y blur. The constant switching in these binaries of emotions reflect the astounding production of Junior Boys’ sound, where Greenspan’s ambient deep voice becomes indistinguishable in between the organized chaos of the beats, the synths, the opposing complexities. And although it seems that there would be some disconnect between the lines, there isn’t. The overall composition is overwhelmingly heartfelt, romantic, and real. Junior Boys’ upcoming release Begone Dull Care continues to…
