D-D-Don't Don't Stop the Beat (Atlantic)

At the risk of losing all credibility, I have fallen hard for Junior Senior. It was infatuation at first listen; these Danish id savants' Day-Glo dance ditties struck me like NutraSweet lightning and made me feel like a fourteen-year-old girl digging her first CD rather than a 41-year-old man reviewing his 987th album. Sharing Andrew W.K.'s superhuman will to party, Junior Senior are geniuses at conflating influences, biting and sugaring up the most ecstatic bits of chart fodder from '60s garage rock and teen-beat surf, '70s new wave and disco, and beyond. "Rhythm Bandits" sounds like Fatboy Slim getting busy with the Beach Boys' "Fun Fun Fun" vocal harmonies, and the stuttering disco homage "Move Your Feet" comes off like Chic playing the Jacksons' "Enjoy Yourself." Like all of D-D-Don't Don't Stop the Beat, this music is so absurdly cute (or cutely absurd) that only the most bilious curmudgeon would resist it.
