Local | José González at Skeppsholmen

By on July 8, 2016
José González released his debut album Veneer in 2003 and its sequel, In Our Nature came in 2007, two albums of delicate and emotional indie folk with a guitar and singing in focus that came to place José González on top of the singer-songwriter throne. After that it went over the seven years before José González returned with the masterpiece Vestiges & Claws in February. But he was hardly idleness in the meantimeamong others two albums with his band Junip, tours with Sidi Touré and Tinariwen and soundtrack work on the CV from the seven years.
Vestiges & Claws is the third installation in González acoustic trilogy and recorded at home and produced by José González himself. The album is an intimate story where soft guitar arrangements meet incredible songwriting. Live gives the wings and lift to new heights with all-out bands (Joel Wästberg, Jakob Albinsson, James Mathe and Andres Renteria).
When he in August, along with the aforementioned musicians, standing in front of a full width at Skeppsholmen in last year’s Stockholm Music & Arts described the DN Po Tidholm the concert with the words “incomprehensible good, one of the best I’ve seen in a long time.” We could not have said it better myself. José González always goes straight to the heart.
