Fold has the kind of melody that most singer-songwriters live for. Straightforward and simple, José has a voice and style that vaguely reminds me British guitar icon Burt Jansch. His playing is not quite as slippery or refined as Burt though,  José’s playing is more aggressive than the classical tinged folk players of the ’60’s. José González’s highly anticipated 2nd full length, In Our Nature was released last week in the US through Mute Records. He will play dates in the US touring for the first half of October, then head to the UK.
