José González performs ‘Leaf Off/The Cave’ and ‘Open Book’ for 6 Music – listen

The Swedish singer appeared on Lauren Laverne's radio show on Thursday (March 12)

José González has delivered a live session for BBC Radio 6 Music.

Appearing on Lauren Laverne’s show on Thursday (March 12), González performed tracks ‘Leaf Off/The Cave’ and ‘Open Book’ in the studio and stuck around for a chat. Listen in full below.

González released his new album ‘Vestiges & Claws’ on February 17. It’s his first solo record since 2007’s ‘In Our Nature’.

NME’s Ben Homewood said of the LP: “The record is littered with painstakingly layered guitar parts, mellifluous melodies and clapping drumbeats… ‘Leaf Off / The Cave’ and ‘What Will’ are beautifully constructed, and on the latter González’s guitar wraps compellingly around a rock-hard rhythm. Closer ‘Open Book’ is best, though, a perfectly executed example of González’s soothing folk.”

Meanwhile, González also recently appeared on Swedish game show På spåret, performing live covers of TLC’s ‘Waterfalls’ and John Lennon’s ‘Woman’.

The indie folk star was accompanied by the band Augustifamiljen for the two tracks. Watch here.
