180g Vinyl LP From Remarkable Talent With Crystal Clear Voice!
With his crystal-clear singing voice and vibrant, classically-inspired playing, José González has been hailed as one of today's most remarkable new artists - testament to the irrefutable power of one man and a guitar. "Veneer" - the Swedish tunesmith's acclaimed debut - captures his magical sound in its purest state, simply beautiful and beautifully simple. Touching on a remarkable array of influences, from frank folk to classic pop to a dazzling spectrum of world music, songs such as "Lovestains" and the worldwide hit single, "Heartbeats" display an eloquence and majesty that make it clear why the gifted young musician has already become an international sensation. "Veneer" marks José González as that true rarity, an artist whose work is both strikingly original and brilliantly timeless.
"Veneer is a striking collection of hushed and autumnal indie pop bedroom songs that reside on the hi-fi end of the lo-fi spectrum...Veneer is about as intimate as they come; it sounds like he is sitting right on the end of your bed singing just for you. At times, González is a little more forceful than most of his schoolmates, often working himself into a tightly spinning ball of emotion (as on the driving "Lovestain" and the bluesy "Hints"). At these moments his voice is reminiscent of Mark Kozelek, only without the wild flights of pretension." -Tim Sendra, allmusic.com
