CONTEST – Junip @ Lee’s Palace – November 5, 2010
Jon BergmanWho: Junip
What: Before Jose Gonzalez found fame as Jose Gonzalez, he was frontman for this Swedish trio who sound – surprise – like Jose Gonazlez backed by a band. Which is to say hypnotic folk-pop, but with electronic textures and a rhythm section.
Why: Five years after releasing their debut EP and an extended break, Junip have finally released their debut album Fields and are taking said record on tour around the world.
When: Friday, November 5, 2010
Where: Lee’s Palace in Toronto (19+)
Who else: Sharon Van Etten is opening up on this tour and is worth the price of admission alone.
How: Tickets are $15 in advance, but courtesy of Mute Records and Collective Concerts, I’ve got goodies to give away. One winner will get two copies of the deluxe, triple-disc edition of Fields on CD and two copies of the Rope & Summit EP on 12″ vinyl to go with a pair of passes to the show, and two runner-up winners will get a pair of passes to the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see Junip” in the subject line and your full name and mailing address in the body. The contest will close at midnight, November 2.
