Jose Gonzalez: "The risks of this coming century are too high."

Jose Gonzalez on Effective Altruism, Doomsday Dudes, & The Songs of Local Valley

Jose Gonzalez catches up with Kyle Meredith to talk about Local Valley, his first album since 2015’s Vestiges & Claws. The Swedish singer-songwriter talks about effective altruism as a way to make the world a better place and how it fits in with the lyrics, being frustrated with “doomsday dudes,” and how a line like “we’re all in this together” is both a statement and a plea. Gonzalez also discusses incorporating Western African music into his style and covering his other band Junip’s song Line of Fire.
