#1: Album Review - Jose Gonzalez - Veneer

Album Review - Jose Gonzalez - Veneer

In naming his debut Veneer, Jose Gonzalez seems to suggest that his work
contains a certain superficiality that is designed to mask a less
desirable substratum, and in effect, he couldn't have chosen a better
title to grace the set. Save for the final track Broken Arrows, which is
adorned with the mournful cry of a trumpet, his 11 somber meditations
are delivered with nothing more than the seductive sounds of his gently
picked acoustic guitar, hushed vocals, and an occasional wisp of
percussion. Inside the intoxicating circularity of the rhythms, however,
lies an ominous air, and what at first appears to be bathed in warm
intimacy, soon reveals itself to be disturbingly distanced.
