If you haven't heard Jose Gonzalez then watch and LISTEN! Jose is a MASTER of covering songs. Heartbeats is actually a song by the Swedish band The Knife and his version sounds NOTHING like theirs. Incredible. You can hear The Knife's version HERE. I like their version as well.
Jose is from Sweden, but his parents are from Argentina. THANK YOU lovely Laura for introducing me to his music!
I saw him perform live in October, 2006 at the Casbah here in San Diego. He was sublime... very shy. I met him after the show and he signed my cd. I had my pic taken with him but I look like a beluga so sorry I am not posting THAT one.
I'll post another video from him soon...he is also a member of a VERY cool band called Junip. He does a FANTASTIC cover of Springsteen's "The Ghost of Tom Joad" on their ep. I will hunt down a link for it and post that also. You can hear two of their songs on MySpace.
Enjoy this one!!
