Redirected from Fields (Junip album)). Fields is the debut LP by Swedish based indie rock band Junip.
Indeed, Fields is exactly the album you'd expect these guys to make. González's smooth synthesis of classical guitar playing, English folk traditions, and pan-African rhythms have long made clear that he values quality and consistency over risk and innovation and doesn't much care for trends or scenes. And while Junip clearly says "rock" and "band," they perform the same values with brisk professionalism. So the record sounds contemporary and urbane but isn't stamped with a specific sell-by date or target demographic.
In Every Direction kicks off the album with hypnotic beats and keyboards that have a much more rock feel than anything González has done on his own, while Tide closes it with big drums and drones. In between are songs filled with interesting, but not showy, textures and ideas, from Rope & Summit 's acoustic Krautrock motorik to Sweet & Bitter 's distorted beats. Howl is another standout, futuristic folk-blues with percussion that sounds like an impromptu rhythm tapped on a water glass.

Fields, the debut album by José González's band Junip, was nearly a decade in the making, and it sounds like it. Not because it’s particularly elaborate - actually, in many places, it’s nearly as spare as González's solo work - but because the chemistry evident on these songs only comes with time. González and his bandmates, keyboardist Tobias Winterkorn and drummer Elias Araya, began playing together in the late ‘90s.
Listen free to Junip – Fields (In Every Direction, Always and more). The first four songs were originally released on the Rope & Summit EP, while the latter two were previously unreleased.
Fields is an ideal title for an album that has a tang of mists and mellow fruitfulness about it. Gothenburg trio Junip's skill at creating pastoral melancholy has much to do with the input of José González, whose solo success delayed the release of Fields by several years. The intimacy of his solo sound informs this record – even when it goes off on a Krautrocky tangent (Rope & Summit) or gets a psychedelic groove on (In Every Direction), the atmosphere is always subtle and underplayed.
