I’m sitting in the backyard in the cushioned swing with my laptop with the intention of finding new music and I’ve come across a free EP that so far sounds quite promising.
The band Junip, headed by indie-folk’s Jose Gonzalez, is a nice example of when an artist decides to explore new musical sounds outside of their typical comfort zone. (Cough: take a hint, New Pornographers)
The first track, Rope and Summit, is a great, pulsing rock song that layers upon itself until it feels like every beat is a fleeting streetlight on the highway at night.
Grab the EP for free from the band’s website!
