Written from headlines scanned or news stories scrolled, he creates an aural scrapbook that reverberates with tape loops and guitar FXs. An England puffed up into absurdity by political outrage and infighting all fed these songs.
The 2007 album from the Swedish singer/songwriter. After a breakthrough debut album, more than three full North American tours in one year a tour with Zero 7 and major TV performances, José González returns with this, his sophomore album.
Gonzalez strikes a balance between stripped back arrangements-just Jose's intimate vocal and exquisite nylon string guitar work-and tracks driven by groovy drum machine loops and other percussive elements.
