New José González: "Leaf Off / The Cave"

Some people get pretty razzed about a band or artist staying on a predictable course, but, I have to say that I usually have no problem with one of my favourite musicians maintaining the terrific ingredients that made me fall in love with them in the first place.

Despite what you might hear, such is not actually really the case with soft strumming, humming indie-folk artist José González, who's slow releasing new singles following his 6-year hiatus. Each new track folds in lush, evolved bits while still wrapping you in the musical shelter of warmth and solace that is his music. On the latest single off his forthcoming album, Vestiges and ClawsGonzález s easy chords and hushed harmonies are still there, demanding full attention from his listeners, but are spiced with a gentle clap beat that ticks the song along at a more mid-tempo pace than usual. It's great.

Vestiges and Claws is out February 17 on Imperial Recordings.
