José González
Taste Is Like Your Bum
In 2003, Jose Gonzalez covered the song “Heartbeat” by The Knife and instantly catapulted himself into the hearts and study rooms of so many. Almost 20 years later, he is still the well-known unknown of indie folk. With his new album »Local Valley« and after collaborations with Junip or The Göteborg String Theory, he goes back to his own personal sound. We had the opportunity to interview him.
