Sweden has been good to us, and evidence is all around: chewy red fish, two cinematic Bergmans, Smörgåsbords, H&M, Ikea, the zipper and Abba. Now it sends Jose Gonzalez our way, an indie-folk virtuoso whose original songs are matched by his extraordinary covers - he transformed Kylie Minogue’s “Hand on Your Heart,” for instance, from uninspired retro-pop to an earnest plea for love. Swing by the Paradise on Sunday, Sept. 30, to catch Gonzalez on tour for his new album, “In Our Nature.” Not familiar with his music? Visit his MySpace to hear the album for free.
