José González earned himself a lot of fans with his first album, Veneer. Songs from it were placed in TV shows and featured in ads, he appeared on Top of the Pops and played festivals, and became a sought-after guest vocalist for electronic artists (Zero 7, Savath & Savalas, Plan B). His intimate, tender sound featuring just his voice and a skillfully played acoustic guitar struck a chord all around the world.
Best known for his cover of The Knife’s Heartbeats from his 2003 debut album Veneer, Swedish songwriter José González has plenty more to boast about in his own right for his follow-up LP In Our Nature. Able to create an uncanny ambience from little more than a stripped guitar and a few hand claps, González has managed to push beyond the tag as a tribute artist that overshadowed his first album. Though containing a dead-on rendition of Massive Attack’s Teardop mid-album, the splintered acoustics of tracks like Down the Line and allegoric tension of The Nest resonate just as loudly.

What In Our Nature does offer is the softest, yet most active set of tracks released since Bjork’s Medulla, and even that instrumentally-bare album has more going on than this one.

Genre: Singer-Songwriter. José González has style, he has a good voice and amazing guitar-playing, but it isn't always that he convinces with his songwriting. The fact that this record has so few songs and still features a "bonus" cover song that is much longer than any other track may be readen as a lack of creativity sign, not to mention the version of Massive Attack's Teardrop contained in the list too.
