Song of the Day

Today’s song of the day is Jose Gonzalez – Killing For Love .  Don’t be confused by his name – his parents are from Argentina, but he was born in Sweden.  This is acoustic indie pop, with a classical influenced guitar, congos, and light harmony, in a minor/sad key.  All Music reports he sounds, among others, like Nick Drake and Elliot Smith, which makes sense to me, as I had already put them all together on a playlist, and like them all.  From the 2007 album In Our Nature.  If you like this, check out his 2005 album, Veneer, which features a number of additionally excellent songs, including Crosses.

This is a live version – still quite good – which apparently appeared on TV.
