José González – Hand On Your Heart

Swedish singer songwriter José González occupies the same space in my music library as Nick Drake, that sadly gone acoustic troubadour.  Hand On Your Heart is from his 2006 EP Stay in the Shade, and while it’s a great song I especially like how well the animation style fits the tone of the piece.

    That was beautifully done. Monkey’s right, the tone and the animation match well. I’m gonna check this guy’s music out more.

    His album ‘Veneer’ is most certainly worth looking into.  I’ve posted his Stay in the Shade clip, and the Sony Bravia clip uses his cover of the song ‘Heartbeats’.

    I refuse to accept that José González is from Sweden. Nope.

    The great part is that a Swedish guy named José González can sing in perfect English with a video done in beautiful Japanese backdrop. Brilliant.

    Yah, it’s that kind of thing that makes me realize we live in a beautiful world.
