THIS ALBUM IS NOT OUT YET! GET IT HERE BEFORE I GET FUCKED. JOSE'S SECOND PROMISING ALBUM. I DIDNT HAVE MUCH TIME TO LISTEN IN DETAIL BUT IT SEEMS QUITE GOOD.
ALBUM`````````````IN OUR NATURE
YEAR```````````````2007 (25th SEPTEMBER)
Considering the simplicity, quality and lush emotial experience of his debut album "Veneer", this album better be good. I've listen to it but not in detail and it sounds quite good. As I've noticed, this time, Jose is singing about the primitive side of humans. He is still using only his acoustic guitar occasionaly mixed with some simple tasteful percussions.
Swedish singer/songwriter José González is a star in his native land. His album Veneer was released there in the early 2000s and has achieved gold status. Far from the pop album you might expect from such a statement, the album is an entirely acoustic affair that reflects a childhood spent listening to equal parts bossa nova, classical, and post-punk by the likes of Joy Division. Touchstones for González's sound include Nick Drake, Paul Simon, Red House Painters, and Elliott Smith, all artists who are literate, quiet, and melancholy but also create memorable songs as well.
