JUNIP w/ Barbarossa

Formed in 1998 in Gothenburg, Sweden, Junip has taken its time in releasing it's first album in 2010, due in large part to Jose Gonzalez's success as a solo artist. Audiences were captivated by the stark combination of González’s uniquely haunting voice and sinuous acoustic guitar on hits like “Crosses” and “Down The Line,” and distinctive interpretations of covers like The Knife’s “Heartbeats.” They were startled and beguiled, then, by hearing González in Junip’s band context, and one with such a propulsive, experimental bent: sprawling away from the stark folk aesthetic of González’s solo efforts, Fields teems with driving motorik rhythms, psychedelic atmosphere, and dense synth textures. Despite its differences to Jose's solo work, Junip’s powerful instrumental interplay reveals itself throughout and with nimble players to react to, González's picking is carried into raggedly virtuosic sublimity.
