Tunes Tuesday, "Walking Lightly," Junip

I really loved Jose Gonzalez's solo work — his cover of "Heartbeats" is so spare and beautiful — but somehow I've lost track of him since then. I got an email about Gonzalez's band Junip and fell in love with their single, "Walking Lightly." It's kind of a loping groove, to the extent that even though it's mainly Jose singing "We're all walking lightly" over and over again, the song is definitely going somewhere. Adding layers and layers of the instrumentation will do that.

Dig it? Junip will be at the Ottobar in Baltimore on Wednesday, so you can hear Jose's  voice for yourself. I saw him at Sixth and I Synagogue way back and loved the show.
