Meet Junip. A Sweedish band headed by Jose Gonzalez with Elias Araya and Tobias Winterkorn, Junip released Fields back in 2010 after a five year hiatus, and got a lot of talk and recognition for it. The album rocks: every song demands attention, but in a humble, calm, reassuring way.
There is no undue excitement, no caffeine-induced rants, no speaker-testing guitar blasts. Everything Junip has on Fields commands interest because of its modesty, it’s ability to speak softly, without wasting words. From Fields, comes “Always,” with a brilliant video to boot.
