José González

Conceived as the natural third part in an acoustic trilogy, ‘Vestiges & Claws’ is a(nother) hushed and delicate solo set that forefronts José González’s compellingly intimate vocal style and intricate guitar technique. Often strikingly rhythmic in nature, the album cohere’s perfectly with hand claps and taps on the body of José’s instrument, underlining the songs' mantric rise-and-fall patterns, while elsewhere, over-dubbed guitar parts and multi-tracked vocal harmonies entwine to sweetly immersive effect.
