 Junip + Mariam The Believer @ The Fleece (17/09/13) {Event & Tickets}

José González is perhaps best known for his heavily played (and sync’d) cover of The Knife’s ‘Heartbeats’. However now, with a host of other well-liked solo material under his belt, he leads Junip – a three-piece that may well have already dwarfed his earlier chapter.

Devotees to the wave of quasi-folk that includes Iron & Wine and Bon Iver have undoubtedly taken note, with their sound also bleeding over into The Shins, My Morning Jacket or any manner of flagship earthies.

Strangely, the group actually formed in 1998 (in Gothenburg, Sweden), but didn’t actually release their acclaimed debut ‘Fields’ until 2010 – owing in no small part to González selling over a million solo albums during this time.

Report to The Fleece this September to soak up the folk-fuelled goodness.
