A month too late, here's José González

José González is a Swedish musician born to Argentine parents. His performances are hauntingly gorgeous. The one I've included below, the cover of the Knives' Heartbeats, gives me a slight case of what my poetry teacher calls "the goosebumps." The song's subject quickly becomes clear to the listener. My favorite verse goes: "And you, you knew the hands of the devil, and you, kept us awake with wolf teeths, sharing different heartbeats, in one night."
