DOWNLOAD: Junip (featuring Jose Gonzalez) - Chickens
We're big fans of folk guitarist Jose Gonzalez here at RCRD LBL, and we're very, very excited to bring to you an exclusive, unreleased song from his side project: ethereal folk rockers Junip. Jose created Junip in the late '90s with his best friends Tobias Winterkorn (organs) and Elias Araya (drums), after he had spent his formative years in various Swedish hardcore bands. If you find it hard to imagine the mild-mannered, acoustic hero in a hardcore setting, it's not much of a stretch: Junip's songs have the emotional heft of any Black Flag or Minor Threat song, only channeled through organs and acoustic guitars. The band is currently recording an album in Sweden, so be sure to check back for more details as they emerge. Enjoy!
