Junior Senior, 'Hey Hey My My Yo Yo' (Rykodisc/ Crunchy Frog)

8
Hey Hey My My Yo Yo
Critical Mass
Label: Rykodisc/ Crunchy Frog

by Barry Walters

On their follow-up to 2003's D-D-Don't Don't Stop the Beat, this Danish duo condense pop's last 45 years into the pure, simple essence of an early Jackson 5 single. In word, style, and sound, they exude cross-cultural idealism with scratchy soul guitars, joyous bubblegum hooks, shape-shifting harmonies, stuttering rhymes, and live beats. When guest vocalists from the B-52's, Le Tigre, and '60s Motown girl group the Velvelettes drop by, the call-and-response and musical counterpoints stack up high enough to reach disco heaven.
