Jose Gonzalez – A Take Away Show

This Take Away Show featuring José González was filmed several years ago in Marfa, Texas.  I’ve been listening to a lot of quiet music lately and I keep coming back to González.  In a world of sensitive man-children wielding acoustic guitars where the ghost of Nick Drake looms as large as the Colossus of Rhodes, I think González is a standout.  His hush-toned sincerity and uncluttered finger picking pay a gentle homage to Drake without ever falling into ripoff territory.
