jeremy greenspan made an extended visit to shanghai to write and begin recording 'it's all true'. traces of the influence of the trip can not only be seen but heard in tracks like the album opener 'itchy fingers' whose exotic middle eight features local musicians greenspan recorded during his sojourn. with much of the album composed and conceived, greenspan returned to his native hamilton, ontario and was joined by matthew didemus to record in earnest at the band's recently constructed studio where greenspan had recently mixed and recorded a few tracks on caribou's most recent album, 'swim'. from the word 'go,' 'it's all true' has a spring in its step as opening track 'itchy fingers' features lofty bpms in a range never explored on record by the group before and then, just as suddenly, the band shift gears to the sparse, brooding 'playtime.' from the confident stomp of 'you'll improve me' and the sophisticated pop of 'a truly happy ending' to the epic album closer of 'banana ripple,' 'it's all true' is by far the junior boys most accomplished album to date.
