Junip - Walking Lightly

Feels Like: Jose Gonzalez, Breathe Owl Breathe, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Chillco

I'm pretty familiar with Junip's lead singer Jose Gonzalez's solo work, but had somehow never heard of Junip. Now I have and am pretty thrilled by what Gonzalez sounds like surrounded by some very adept musicians. The result is akin to a mellowed-out Wilco. Junip layers one sonic slice upon another resulting in a pretty grandiose auditory lasagna to feast your ears on. Dig.
