The Long Center and KUTX present José González plus Bedouine, Saturday, February 3 in Dell Hall.

Since releasing “In Our Nature” in 2007, José González has been steadily collecting ideas for new songs. An album consisting of years’ worth of musical sketches might naturally sprawl wildly in production and style, but on “Vestiges & Claws,” González has created a collection of songs that cohere just about perfectly. It travels from the glowerng, riff-driven ‘Stories We Build, Stories We Tell’ via the groovy ‘Leaf Off/TheCave’ to the anthemic ‘Every Age.’ For those familiar with José’s earlier work there is little doubt as to who is behind these recordings.

Where José’s previous albums, “Veneer” and “In Our Nature,” might have sounded sparse and barren in parts, “Vestiges & Claws” has an altogether new feeling to it, at once warmer and darker than before. He talks about how he’s found inspiration in sprawling ’70s Brazilian productions, American folk rock and West African desert blues this time. And how he’s decided to waive the principle of having everything on the album reproducible in a live context.

Opening for José González is the Syrian musician Bedouine, touring to promote the release of her eponymous debut—sixties folk meets seventies country-funk with a glimmer of bossa nova cool. Sweeping and hypnotic with a nomadic heart, the music of L.A.-based Bedouine is impressionistic, with careful words and striking, cultural conviction.
