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

The gimmick of this new Danish duo is that Junior (Jesper Mortensen) is straight and Senior (Jeppe Laursen) is gay. Together they make infectious dance beats that will have listeners grooving non-stop regardless of sexual orientation. "Everybody, move your feet and feel united," they sing on the deliriously catchy single "Move Your Feet," which combines disco, Motown and Beastie Boys-style hip-hop into the perfect party song. On other cuts, such as the unabashedly exuberant "Shake Your Coconuts," Junior Senior incorporates punk, new wave and even '60s surf music. They do it all with a keen pop sensibility and a healthy kitsch factor. These guys are a modern-day cross between Wham! and the B-52's. Welcome to the summer's guiltiest pleasure.--C.A. BOTTOM LINE: D-D-Don't miss out
