Junior Boys’ playlist
Congratulations are in order for electro-pop duo Junior Boys.
This morning, the guys woke up to a Juno nomination for Electronic Album of the Year.
It’s All True, the Boy’s fourth studio album, is being recognized for the exceptional electronic effort that it is by the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS).
Joining the Junior Boys in the electronic category are fellow nominees Arthur Oskan, Azari & III, Austra and Tim Hecker.
The 2012 Juno Awards are set to broadcast live from Scotiabank Place in Canada’s capital on April 1. You can buy tickets to the event here or simply tune into CTV when all the action goes down.
