Junip | Fields A Review

In recent memory there has been a deluge of great American folk music coming from all over the world. Whether it’s coming from North America or Europe one thing is clear this music isn’t from the soundtrack from Deliverance. Recently a band hailing from Sweden has made its contribution to the genre in a not so small way. The band Junip, first full length LP titled Fields has the low key style with a slightly psychedelic edge. José González offers up a solid vocal performance throughout Fields. As a singer González s seems to have established a mood in his songs and painted a picture for the listener that illustrates a level of meaning and complexity that only comes with natural talent and a honed skill set.  Key tracks off of Fields are: Always, Howl and Off Point.
