Junip is the band that includes guitarist/vocalist Jose Gonzalez, who produced wonderful albums Veneer and In Our Nature. As much as I love those two albums, I find that the addition of drums and keys on "Fields" expands the types of songs Gonzalez can do and improves their overall listenability.
At the risk of damning with faint-sounding praise, these songs are pleasant. But that's no small feat, creating an entire collection of songs none of which breaks the spell that the low-key instrumentals and understated singing produces. Nothing Junip does is ever likely to grace a karoake collection--the songs are not tuneful in that way. But there is a sense in which the sophisticated poetry is carried along by the bouyant melodies and unobtrusive percussion that is very compelling and works on two levels: Fields can be wonderful background music for a gathering, but the lyrics are such that they will reward more mindful reflection.
