I know it's been a long time since I've done one of these posts, but I really think that's because I haven't been particularly inspired by much music lately. That is, until I heard this new record from José González.
You may remember him from such projects as this one and this, but he's back now with his first solo record in seven years and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's beautiful and hopeful and I've been listening to it in its entirety on repeat for almost two weeks now.
All of this to say, I think you should check this record out. I think you'll like it. What are you waiting for? Do it now. Go.
