Swedish singer and guitarist José González is an accomplished songwriter, having given us five albums between his solo career and his band Junip, but he first gained attention from a lot of us via his transformative covers of other people's songs. He's got a real talent for adaptation, making a wide variety of music fit into his delicately finger-picked, hushed but emotive singing style. He's performed and recorded a dozen or so over the years, and we picked six of his best.
Jose will release Local Valley, his first album in over six years, in September via Mute. You can get it on exclusive red vinyl in the BV shop.
