Jim Woodring vs. José González vs. Andreas Nilsson

I've been digging José González's fantastic album In Our Nature for several years now, but I only recently thought to look for a video of my favorite González song, "Down The Line." Not only is there an incredibly intense live version here, but the official music video for the song is based on the deeply surreal comic "Manhog Beyond The Face" by none other than Jim Woodring! It's one of two videos directed by Andreas Nilsson based on the Woodring strip, the other being "Killing For Love."


  1. Gonzalez’s new/old band Junip has an EP available for a free download. It is very, very good and pleasantly different from his solo stuff.

  2. The song he did for Red Dead Redemption is amazing and the moment that it played was simply beautiful for the game.

  3. It should be noted that the Manhog character and story were used without Woodring’s permission or knowledge.
