There is something incredibly soothing about the music of
Swedish-born crooner Jose Gonzalez (who is of Argentinean descent). His
stripped down, acoustic melodies and fragile vocals are a breath of
fresh air among the action-packed tracks of his peers in the pop
charts. Parasol Records is
streaming Gonzalez' entire EP "Stay In The Shade" on its web site. The
label also features an mp3 of the title track that was featured earlier
this year in an episode of FOX' The OC. "Stay In The Shade" is
ultimately a song about denial that starts out slow and climaxes
abruptly to reflect its lyrical theme.
If you have a moment, also make sure to check out Gonzalez' gorgeous cover of Kylie Minogue's "Hand On Your Heart" which is as close to perfection as the original. Stream it here.
