I can't tell you how anxious I am for Jose Gonzalez's next album, In Our Nature, to come out September 25. Gonzalez's music has a tendency to lull me into a dreamy contentment, so gentle is his voice and sweet classical guitar-inspired picking. Some soft hand claps as accompaniment is about as aggressive as this music gets, so I listen to it whenever I need to relax.
On In Our Nature, Gonzalez reportedly goes a little folkier, with more strumming, more rhythm and a little less dazed reverie. I can't get enough of his warm melodies and kind-sounding voice, and if "Down the Line" is any indication, In Our Nature promises to be a stellar success for this Swedish-born gentleman of Argentinian descent.
