Erica, this song is for you! Miss you already!
The performance of Swede José González with his new band Junip at this weekend's Berlin Festival was an absolute highlight* for me - and for my friend Erica Stoltz (Lost Goat, Dirty Excuse) visiting from Brooklyn.
The song "Rope and Summit" had been available as a free download - so we listened to it all weekend. The album Fields came out in Germany on Friday and is out in the US tomorrow. You can stream Fields on NPR.

And for good measure, here is the first official full video for the band, directed by Andreas Nilsson:
