As RollingStone commented in their album review of their self-titled sophomore record released earlier this year “Sweden-based indie-folk auteur José González can massage your worried mind like Cat Stevens. With his band Junip, there’s a dark, funky undercurrent pulling against the pastoral kindness” –proving a band doesn’t need to shout to make people stand up and take notice. Sometimes all you need to do is walk lighty.

“Walking Lightly” EP Tracklisting:
“magnificent sophomore effort”
“A reflective exploration of sound, Junip is bolder in musical and lyrical ventures than the trio’s previous work.”
““Junip” is filled with lush, spacey electronic prog folk that should appeal to fans on both sides of today’s strum.”
Junip is Gothenburg, Sweden-based rock trio consisting of Elias Araya (drums), José González (guitar, vocals), and Tobias Winterkorn (organ, moog). Junip released their sophomore, self-titled album on April 23rd, 2013 via Mute.
“All the ups and downs were very ‘Junip,’ so titling it with our name seemed appropriately iconic. It’s truly a band album.”
– José González
