Junior Boys, Egyptrixx

When: Mon., Oct. 10, 9 p.m. 2011

Before settling in to write their latest record, 2011's It's All True, Ontario indie-electro duo Junior Boys did a bit of traveling. Jeremy Greenspan spent two months in Shanghai. Synth programmer and engineer Matt Didemus mucked it up at home in Berlin. They met back in Canada and made another synth-heavy dance record—this time, about growing older and breaking up. The album, like much of the Junior Boys discography, is a surprisingly coherent tangle of post-punk, disco, R&B, techno, soul and more. The duo's knack for paring sharp percussion with synth flares, stabbing bass lines and lyrical transcendence plays out in swift offerings and anthemic builds alike. Egyptrixx opens. —Ashley Melzer
