June 3, 2010 - New York, NY – Section101, a leading destination for artists wishing to take control of their digital world, is excited to be working with alt-indie band Junip on their website.
The Swedish based indie rock outfit Junip are gearing up for some North American dates and European festival shows in June, and thanking their loyal fans by giving away their new EP for free on their site, http://www.junip.net.
Lead vocalist/guitarist Jose Gonzalez formed Junip, a band that has played intermittently together through out the 90s. Gonzalez is an indie rock darling, having made a name for himself with his trippy, acoustic free-flowing music, harkening back to Nick Drake and Elliot Smith. While Gonzalez continues his solo career, he gravitates back to Junip, playing with band mates Elias Araya on drums and Tobias Winterkorn on keyboards. Releasing music that’s moody, smart and mysterious, Junip are best know for their 2006 EP, Black Refuge.
2010 finds the band finally getting ready to release a full-length album. As a reward for perhaps their patience, Junip are gifting fans with the EP Rope and Summit. The EP will also be available digitally from Mute in the US, City Slang in Euro, Ultra Vybe in Japan and Shock in Australia.
