GO BRITS - Great Albums From U.K.'s Best Kept Secrets! (pt. 2)

BURN THE NEGATIVE - In The Atmosphere 

Described by The Guardian as being "as consistently entertaining as anything The Killers have ever done" or think Interpol if they'd spent less time listening to Joy Division and more to New Order, British four-piece Burn The Negative's debut album "In The Atmosphere" is a unique concoction of energetic trashy disco blended with electro beats, New Romantic rhythms and the spirit of ‘70s punk, ‘80s rock and ‘90s house. The band cite Japan, David Sylvian, Gary Numan, Sonic Youth, David Bowie, Baby Ford, Nine Inch Nails and a dozen others as holding key spots in their music collections. Featuring "Wonder Why", "Candem", "You Control Me", Low" and more.

JUNIOR BOYS - Begone Dull Care 

"Begone Dull Care" is electronic indie darlings Junior Boys' third album, following the critical and commercial successes of "Last Exit" (2004) and "So This Is Goodbye" (2006). The new album still holds the melancholic flavor they’ve come to perfect, just with some added twinkling synths, hints at old-school R&B, and a splash of funk for good measure. It's definitely a bold and meticulously crafted effort by one of the most original electronic pop acts of the 2000s. Includes "Hazel", "Parallel Lines", "Sneak A Picture", "Dull To Pause" and more.
