JUNIOR SENIOR Invades New York, CD Release Tuesday

JUNIOR SENIOR kick off their New York City invasion tonight with a FREE instore show at 9:00pm at Sound Fix Records in Williamsburg. The store is located at 110 Bedford Ave., just off the L train Bedford stop. The duo will also be signing copies of their new album "Hey Hey My My Yo Yo", which finally sees its US release on Tuesday.

Then comes Monday night, when Junior Senior will be joined by San Francisco party band GRAVY TRAIN and Le Tigre's JD SAMSON for a headlining show at NYC's brand new Highline Ballroom. This will be the funnest option you have on a Monday night (or any other night this week, if you ask me).

"Hey Hey My My Yo Yo" is a definitive party album, packed with guest artists and hip-shakin' dance-funk. The US release also comes accompanied by a special 7-song ep "Say Hello, Wave Goodbye".

The stand-out track for me is 'Take My Time', which features the lovely harmonies of Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson of THE B-52'S. The track recalls the blissful, easy going vibe of The B-52's breakout 1989 album "Cosmic Thing". Also featured on the album are SPOONER OLDHAM, sixties girl group THE VELVELETTES (known for 'Needle In A Haystack' and 'He Was Really Saying Something') and the not exactly broken up LE TIGRE, who provide the vocals on another key track, 'We Are the Handclaps'. Oldham, whose fame stems from his piano/keyboard contributions to classics such as Percy Sledge's 'When A Man Loves A Woman' and Aretha Franklin's 'I Never Loved A Man', provides the keys on the Kathleen Hanna track 'Dance Chance Romance'.

In short, this is a superstar album that should expose Junior Senior to the masses. In fact, the lead off single 'Can I Get Get Get', featuring JD Samson, has already made it's way around the globe, and is now a key theme song on the LOGO Network.
