Junior Senior - We R The Handclaps (Motown Version)

With the recent announcement that Danish dance pop duo Junior Senior's second album Hey Hey My My Yo Yo will finally get a U.S. release this August, I thought it would be an ideal time to look at a few remixes and b-sides from said album. The CD single for "Can I Get Get Get" features a remix of the title track by Swedish producer Tore Johansson, along with a new version of one of my favourite songs on the album, "We R The Handclaps". The so-called Motown Version of Handclaps isn't all that different, but it strips out most of the electronic elements and enhances the Jackson Five-esque feel of the song. Also included is a DFA Remix of the song "Shake Your Coconuts" which appeared on their first album. These guys are guaranteed to get your summer parties started off on the right foot, and if you don't yet own Hey Hey My My Yo Yo, dance your way down to your local record store on August 14th and make a purchase you won't regret.
