Editorial Reviews

This is the trio s sophomore self-titled release, coming April 23rd, 2013, which builds on the band s critically acclaimed debut album Fields (2010). Junip showcases the boldness and joy that enveloped Elias, José and Tobias as they crafted their newest record.

JUNIP was formed in Gothenburg, Sweden, in the late '90s by José
González (guitar, vocals), Elias Araya (drums) and Tobias Winterkorn (organ,
moog).

Their sound can be familiar to those who have listened to González's critically
acclaimed records, but added to the mix on top of his nylon stringed guitar and
distinctive voice are organs, synths and drums. The songs are often dynamic,
melodic and shadowy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great music bad production decisions. October 17, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I like the music but someone thought that running it through a distortion box would give it an ambient feeling. I would rather hear it clean. It sounds like an old record that has been played too many times.
Other than that I like it. If they ever do a remaster I may buy it again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! May 30, 2013
By EMP
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I first became aware of Jose Gonzalez through his cover of Massive Attack's "Teardrop." Since then I've really liked everything I've heard that he's been involved with, especially Junip. This album continues the feel established with 2010's Fields. Sort of a 6:30 on a summer afternoon feeling...laid back, but with soul...mellow, but not tiresome. Close in sound and feel to Gonzalez's work with Zero 7's The Garden.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Strong Recording Overall January 4, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
All the cuts are listenable, 3 or 4 memorable. The two that impress me the most are the hard-charging "Line of Fire" and the Gilberto-esque "Baton". Also enjoyed "Your Life Your Call" and "Walking Lightly", both representative of Junip at their best. I find this maybe a tad better than "Fields", because it seems to be pushing their boundaries out a little further with the keyboards and rhythms in support of Jose Gonzalez's hypnotic guitar and vocal style. If you are looking for trippy, coffee-house folk, this is the band to go with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Junip Fields Part 2 October 30, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Fields and this follows in the exact same vein. It's a classic sophomore album that doesn't seem as comfortable in its own skin as the first effort did, but it's safe to say if you liked the first album, you'll like this. The continuation of mellow melodies, artful but sometimes uncomfortable distortion, and haunting vocals still make this a winner and worth a place in your music rotation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mellow Wine Bar Music October 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I first heard YOUR LIFE, YOUR CALL on Sirius/XM, I came home told my wife about it immediately. It is a standout track in a really nice, smooth set. It first struck me as something that would go well in the soundtrack of an angst-ridden thirtysomething movie or TV show. I have since learned to appreciate the whole album in bigger ways. If you're looking for life-changing stuff, this is probably not it. If you're looking for something really pleasant to relax with, this could be the ticket. If you're looking to place it in a sub-genre, try listening to YOUR CALL in a set with Beck's I WON'T BE LONG and Phosphorescent's SONG FOR ZULA. All pretty pop for grownups....

This was a gift, and I know my son loves it because he is always listening to it on Spotify. Perfect gift for a guy who has everything.

3.0 out of 5 stars Junip January 21, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A very underwhelming effort with a couple of good songs at the beginning than just 'filler' tracks until the end. I like most of what Gonzalez does, but this seems mostly uninspired and dull.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool January 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These guys are awesome! Really cool Indie Rock. Different from a lot of the stuff out there right now. Laid back music, easy going, and relaxing. I've enjoyed them so much since I found them and have bought a few of their albums. Try them out. I think you'll like them too.
