José González in concert with special guest Bedouine
Swedish singer-songwriter José González is known for his mix of autumnal indie pop and intimate acoustics. His latest album, Vestiges & Claws, marks a sonic shift for the indie folk musician who wanted to continue in the same minimalistic style, but once he started the actual recordings soon realized that most of the songs sounded better with added guitars, a more beat-like percussion, and more backing vocals. The result is an album that is less purist, less strict, with a fuller sound than previous records. Opening for González is the Syrian-born musician Bedouine, touring to promote the release of her 2017 self-titled debut.
