royksopp - juniorFact: At some point, everyone could stand to give in to a little cheesy Euro-disco-electronic music. Do not try to dispute this.

To celebrate this late-summer sunny day in Seattle and my upcoming birthday, here’s something more upbeat than usual. Röyksopp is a Norwegian duo that makes music that lends itself to television — their songs have been used in all sorts of shows and commercials. They do know their way around a hook. Their latest is called Junior. This track is called “This Is It.”
