Surprisingly, this is probably one of my favorite records of 2010.  It sort of came out of nowhere for me.  I've been familiar with Jose Gonzalez for a bit, mainly due to his great acoustic cover of The Knife's "Heartbeats" a while back.  I wasn't aware of his band Junip until about 2 months ago.  Apparantly, they've existed for 10 years now, but only recently started really getting serious about focusing on the band.  They just released their album Fields on Mute/ City Slang, and it's really good.
