"Too good to be true", I thought when I read the name of the Swede with Argentinian roots in our line-up. But it's true, with José González another Scandinavian will captivate us on the Immergut stage. He enchants us with his soft vocals and acoustic sounds, which in no way suggest that his initial musical orientation was in punk. While his songs so far have always been in English, "El Invento", released in February of this year, is the first song with Spanish lyrics, which also encourages José González to brush up on his rusty foreign language skills.
Even if his name may not be familiar to some, it may be his music - unconsciously from commercials, movies or series, because even in the media people know about González's flair for situational music that fits perfectly into the overall picture. Through the coupling with quiet sounds, one sinks all too easily into the thoughtful, almost lyrical lines, which literally invite you to dream away. So much so, that after all these years of quiet José González worship, it wasn't until I was writing this that I learned that his song lines didn't rhyme at all until his most recent album, 2015's "Vestiges & Claws." Yikes. But that's not the only time the singer-songwriter has tried something new, because González not only wrote the album himself, he also produced it. And we love the result - questioning, pure, natural.
