Jose Gonzalez - Teardrop
This is a cover of the Massive Attack song which you may also know as the theme music to House. Maybe you also know the video for the Massive Attack version. Personally, I never liked that video. I find the concept of a singing fetus a little silly. I much prefer the animated psychedelic biblical wrath of the Gonzalez video. Also, I dig how they roast a cube.
Gonzalez is Swedish, by the way. I have listened to one of his records, In Our Nature, and found it to be really lovely stuff, like Nick Drake. It's mostly acoustic guitar and voice. I definitely recommend it.
