Jam of the Day – Junip Provides Ambient Mood for Subarctic Climes

Swedish Folk Band Junip released their first full-length album, Fields, back in 2010. In December, the band announced that they will release a new self titled album this April. The song progression in Fields really builds and is worth a full listen here. “Howl” is one of my favorite tracks. Their sound has a haunting, seventies feel, even drawing recent comparisons to Cat Stevens from The New York Times.

Their new single, “Line of Fire,” from the upcoming album is available from free download on their website. So get inside, grab a glass of red wine and have a listen!

Jam of the Day – Junip Slows it Down

For those of you in NYC this Thanksgiving weekend looking for a show to check out before all the overeating and family festivities begin, Junip, a mellow Swedish three-piece fronted by José González, is playing tonight at Irving Plaza. González has a successful solo career with low-voiced, introspective hits like “Crosses” and “Heartbeats” but he and his band-mates have been working toward their first full-length, the 2010 release, Fields, for some time. The video for “Always” was shot, inexplicably, at the World Air Guitar Championships.
