Junip was formed in the late '90s by drummer Elias Araya, singer and guitarist José González, and organ and moog player Tobias Winterkorn.
The early critical response to the band has been glowing. Pitchfork gave the Rope & Summit EP an 8.0 rating, saying that the music favors “simplicity and shade while retaining the uncluttered sonic arranging that so often serves as a trademark of González’s…we won’t have to wait long to hear more from Junip, and if it holds serve from Rope, the only disappointment will be that González could’ve been holding out on us for too long.” Under the Radar said, “González purists will not be able to resist the charms of Junip,” while the Seattle Weekly called them “stellar.”
Junip will be bringing their intimate atmospherics back stateside in the fall. The complete itinerary is below. The opening band for all the dates except Washington, DC and New York will be Sharon Van Etten.
