soundscapes in Folk/Singer-songwriter

gonzalezj-nature.jpgGonzalez's latest album has been a long time coming, but maybe that's because in the interim, his superb 2003 release Veneer just wouldn't stop gaining new admirers. Well, good news for his fans new and old, In Our Nature doesn't mess with the keys to his sound; it's full of drifting, beautifullly plucked acoustic guitar and plantive melodies that hover between the worlds of folk, pop and blues. There's even another cover of an electronic anthem, this time "Teardrop" the standout from Massive Attack's classic Mezzanine. Gonzalez's appeal is simple and timeless, and this strong album affirms that.
