Jose Gonzalez - Heartbeats  

If you liked the Knife song I posted yesterday, then you have to hear this beautiful folky version of the same song. Even if you didn't like The Knife, you will definitely like this because it is quite wonderful. The synths are replaced with classical guitar, but the tempo is no slower, perhaps even faster. It works perfectly in this form and it's not just a good cover, it's a really good song in it's own right. Jose is also Swedish and is tipped to be the next big thing in singer-songwriters - his new album has received top reviews from the British press so his version of Heartbeats may well end up being far more famous than the original.
