“Bring on the Armageddon-these tunes will withstand anything.”
-Under The Radar
 
“Junip…led by multi-culti boy wonder José González-the act’s music somehow manages to incorporate everything from African rhythms to English psychedelia to keyboardist Tobias Winterkorn’s spacey synth stylings, setting the band virtually in a genre of it’s own making.”
-Billboard
 
“This is music that easily goes anywhere.”
-New York Times
 
“These three men are able to sound like an entire orchestra and convincingly so.”
– SPIN 
 
“beautiful synth-pulse”
– Stereogum
 
“Really, there’s no doing it justice-just let it carry you off in all its oceanic splendor.”
-BlackBook

The wait is nearly over—Junip’s self-titled sophomore record will be available next week via Mute on April 23rd. In anticipation of next week’s release, Junip is pleased to share their new album in its entirety with you today. Head over to Pitchfork for an Advance Listen and get swept away by a lush tidal wave of keys, humid joyous rhythms and vibrant emotion. Listen HERE.

At the end of May, the Swedish trio will be heading out for a two-week tour, bringing their stunning album alive across North America. New York Times’ writer Val Haller recently reflected upon a treasured chance to see the band live and had this glowing review to share, “I saw Junip in a tiny venue last year. For me, when he sings, the room goes away, the highest compliment I can pay to a performer.”

Returning to their rehearsal space in Gothenberg, Sweden (where they recorded their 2010 debut release,Fields) the trio once again engaged the assistance of producer Don Alsterberg.
It was an easy decision to self-title the second chapter in their collective story as José states, “All the ups and downs were very ‘Junip,’ so titling it with our name seemed appropriately iconic. It’s truly a band album.”
Junip is Gothenburg, Sweden-based rock trio consisting of Elias Araya (drums), José González (guitar, vocals), and Tobias Winterkorn (organ, moog).
