Junior Senior's "D-D-Don't Don't Stop the Beat" may very well be the party album of the year. The Danish duo—Jesper Mortensen (Junior) and Jeppe Laursen (Senior)—throws down such infectious beats that you cannot help but shake what your mama gave ya. The album's "everyone-have-a-good-time" vibe harks back to Sly & the Family Stone's heyday, while the music is a wacky merging of surf rock, Go-Go's and old-school R&B. Lead single "Move Your Feet" is an irresistible sing-along pop anthem; it is only one of many well-crafted, zippy tunes on the set, which sports not a clunker in the bunch. In doubt? Check out the duo's unofficial anthem "Go Junior, Go Senior," the B-52's-inspired "Shake Your Coconuts," the alt-rock-scorched "Boy Meets Girl" and the punky "C'Mon." Just try sitting this one out.—KC
