Does anyone have his album veneer?? is this guy any good or just another boring singer/song writer???
His guitar work is really minimalist and nice and his voice is pretty good. He's better than most but not mind explodingly amazing. I bought it after I heard him do an XFM session and kinda like it but never really listen to it much.
have his album and although I haven't listened to it a great deal I do like it. I saw him play once in London and he sat on a small stool on stage so that hardly anyone could see him...
his cover of "love will tear us apart" is very good. in fact when i heard "heartbeats" for the first time i thought it sounded like a joy division acoustic track.
also did a cover of Kylie's Hand on your Heart live which was really good.
it was the 93 Feet East one. I enoyed it as much as anyone could without being able to see a thing.
his solo piano stuff.
at least more people get to hear the Knife's song now the cover is on the ad and all.
him covering a track by The Knife, and it's a wonder i didn't melt into a quivering puddle of blissed ectoplasm.
the bottom, and click listen on any of the tracks.
the best one is OCT 21 "Jos Gonzalez och The Knife - Heartbeat "
from Gorilla vs Bear's blog.
I think he's great.
Isn't one of his songs in the sony Bravia TV ad?
I like this ad
see the gig at Bush Hall earlier this year?
I did see him twice this year, first when he supported Arcade Fire at the ULU in March and then a month later supporting Juana Molina at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
