José González

SWEDE FOLLOWS UP HIS PLATINUM-SELLING DEBUT

With his light, airy volce and acoustic guitar, folklsh Gonzalez was 2006's quietest success story, albeit one given a helping hand by his version of The Knife's Heartbeats being featured on a Sony TV ad. In Our Nature is more of the same, down to the unlikely cover version (an almost unrecognisable strum through Massive Attack’s Teardrop), but it lacks the spark of greatness, although Cycling Trivialities and Killing For Love trundle along merrlly. Gonzalez might find his initial success is harder to recreate than his initial sound.
