Jung People is an Instrumental Post-rcok duo based out of Calgary, AB. Canada. Although musical partners for almost a decade, Jung People formed in late 2010 after founding members Bryan Buss and Giordano W. Bassi studied abroad at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA.
They have also performed 60+ dates across Canada in the past two years and are booked to record their next album Gold Bristle with Howard Bilerman (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Arcade Fire) at hotel2tango Studios in Montreal, Canada.
Gold Bristle is a concept album revolving around an original children's story. Referencing and inspired by Norse mythology and modern human ethics, it is an allegory of the mistreatment of farm animals in the production cycle for human consumer goods. Gold Bristle is the golden pig of the Norse god Freyr, and is one of the only times a pig has been glorified in good deed. The story follows a family of pigs through their journey of innonence and their unknown fate. Breathing fact into the lungs of legend, a golden pig is born, who reveals the truth and liberates his friends into wilderness, the original home.
Jung People will be donating full proceeds of this album to Rescue and Sanctuary for Threatened Animals (R.A.S.T.A) just outside of their hometown. See the Indiegogo campaign here - help them make music and save animals.
