Jose Gonzalez

Has anyone heard of this wonderful young man? He's Swedish by way or Argentina and plays the guitar like his hands are really Nick Drake's.

The one thing I don't like is that his best song, "Heartbeats," is a cover of The Knife. But it's still radically different from the original, so I'll give him his credit. I've had it on repeat for approximately the last 3 or 4 hours straight.

Anyway, I will give two thumbs up to his album Veneer and a hearty recommendation to everyone watch his performance of "Heartbeats" on Conan a few days ago.

Veneer is definately on of the best albums I've picked up in the last few months, especially of the acoustic variety. Love the spare, desolate sound and his guitar style.
