Happy New Year my dear NYCROPHONE lovers! I decided to start January 2012 simple – one man, one guitar. Thanks to a friend in Frankfurt/Germany I came across José González. This amazing artist is a Swedish-Argentine indie folk singer-songwriter and guitarist from Gothenburg, Sweden. González is also a member of Swedish band Junip, along with Elias Araya and Tobias Winterkorn.
His work, although mostly original, also includes acoustic covers of such hits as “Heartbeats” by his fellow Swedes The Knife, “Love Will Tear Us Apart” by Joy Division, “Born in the U.S.A.” and “The Ghost of Tom Joad” by Bruce Springsteen, “Hand on Your Heart” by Kylie Minogue, “Smalltown Boy” by Bronski Beat, “Teardrop” by Massive Attack and “Last Snowstorm of the Year” by Low.
