Jose Gonzalez’s long-awaited fourth album, LOCAL VALLEY, provides a welcome reminder of his understated appeal and his singular ability.

LOCAL VALLEY again finds González alone with just a handful of nylon-stringed Spanish guitars, chosen for their resonances and characters. This time, however he employs an iPad’s DM1 drum machine app, replacing the congas and bongos of 2003’s Veneer and 2007’s In Our Nature and his percussive use of the guitar itself on Vestiges & Claws.
