[Watch] Jose Gonzalez - "Every Age" (Official Music Video)

It has been 7 years since Jose Gonzalez released his sophomore LP, In Our Nature. I remember the day it came out all too well because I was actually working at Mute at the time and everyone was so excited to see how far the record would take him. Gotta say, it took him pretty far. While I've thoroughly enjoyed his contribution to society in the form of Junip over the past few years, I am so so so so so so so so so happy that he has returned to us all on his own. 

Earlier today the video for his first single, "Every Age" was unveiled. It's more of an experience, actually. If you head over to Eyes in Space you can enjoy the view of a drone slowly lifting of to SPACE(!!!), which is almost as beautiful as the song itself. Almost. That's saying a lot considering the breathtaking 360° view that the video provides. Bonus: if you're one of those lucky gadget heads out there with a VR headset, you can have an even more awesome experience with the video than I did. 

His upcoming album, Vestiges & Claws drops on February 17th, 2015 on Mute. 

P.S. you can check out the non-360° version of "Every Age" below.

[Watch] Junip - "Without You" (Video)

The above video is the winner of Junip's video contest they hosted with Moog for their latest single, "Without You" from last year's Fields release. I have to say, the winner of the contest, co-DEPENDECYfilm, did a fantastic job of capturing the essence of the song, right? The video was shot in Albuquerque, NM on 16mm film = lo-fi artsy fartsy, yay!  In addition to being named the official video for “Without You”, co-DEPENDENCYfilm receives a Moogerfooger hand crafted effects box from Moog.

Make sure you pick up the Without You EP, which contains remixes from Sun Airway, Portugal The Man and Warm Ghost.

As well as this if you're a big fan of the band you may want to know about a competition Junip are holding. They're asking fans to create their own video interpretation of their track "Without You" and the winner will be selected by the band themselves and used as their official clip to be premiered on Mashable to boot and you win a dope ass Moogerfooger which makes me want to win this contest SO BADLY!
