Juniper Rising (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
“Country music” is not the first thing one thinks of when they think of the Brooklyn music scene, but that’s exactly what this trad Country-inspired four-piece provides. The group released its first lo-fi spin on C&W on tape — actual cassette tape — via Burger Records, followed by a 7-inch single for 307 Knox Records.
