Genre: indie folk

For when you’re: traversing dreamscapes

Highlight Lyric: “There’s a rhythm in rush these days/ Where the lights don’t move and the colors don’t fade/ Leaves you empty with nothing but dreams/ In a world gone shallow/ In a world gone lean” from Stay Alive

Highlight Review: “González takes the basic elements of an acoustic troubadour’s craft and explores their possibilities, not only as ingredients of songs, but as sounds to be enjoyed in their own right. A stray breath, the buzzing of guitar strings, a hand scraping across the frets: these are all shades in González’s palette.” – read more at Pitchfork
