Profile – Jose Gonzales and Junip at Irving Plaza

Last Wednesday, while most of you crowded your ways onto packed trains and subjected yourself to unpleasant Homeland Security “enhanced” patdowns, the crew at Big Ass Lens spent the day soundchecking and chatting with Jose Gonzales and his longtime band, Junip. The result is this 5 1/2 minute profile of the band, which includes footage taken from our interview with Jose and Tobias, the soundcheck, and the last three songs of the set, which include two of the best tracks on their Fields LP, “Without You” and “Every Direction”. For more information on Junip, head over to the BAL website, where we also recently profiled killer guitarist Marnie Stern and Irish singer-songwriter Conor O’Brien of Villagers.
