Junior Boys – “Banana Ripple”

Junior Boys’ It’s All True ends with the 9-minute “Banana Ripple.” We’re told the song involves the Hamilton, Ontario duo “bask[ing] in a multitude of cultural, geographic, and gastronomic touchstones” including “Orson Welles, Howard Hughes, China (in particular Shanghai), Japan (the band, not the country), Banana Ripple ice cream, Carl Craig, and analogue synths.” Surprised they didn’t add “summertime.” The song will be released next month on a 12″ backed with a remix by the Field.
