Cashing In: Junior Boys

With all the TV I watched over the past week while sacked out sick, I was surprised that I've only got one "Cashing In" post to report.

A commercial for Marriott hotels promoting the MP3 player hookups in their rooms uses one of the best of tracks of 2006: "In the Morning" by Junior Boys. The track is fitting for the commercial if only because it's talking about using your iPod as your alarm clock in the room.

With its frantic, minimalist dance blips, the song is a standout, but it took a long time for me to get into the album, "So This Is Goodbye." I still think the A side is much, much stronger than the B side, but the A side is strong enough to warrant a listen.
