jose gonzalez – teardrop

[music monday]

José González is a hypnotic folk guitarist and singer, born and raised in Sweden. His music is mostly acoustic, swelling with eerie reverb. It’s reminiscent of cold, winter mornings in a forest home somewhere in the arctic; I’m talking that terrible minute after you escape the warm bed before the sun is up and the fireplace is lit.  Intimate, primitive.

Teardrop is a cover of the amazing Massive Attack song that is just as awesome. It’s amazing how Jose can turn this trip-hop masterpiece into an acoustic folk song and still capture the epicness. Just amazing.
