Love is in the air

Isn't he a cutie?

I think one of the most beautiful marriages is the one between folk music and electronica. A common image that comes to my mind with this union is early Postal Service but recently it’s been replaced by James Yuill. The style of his cd Turning Down Water for Air ranges from a thumping bass and very electronic middle riff in No Pins Allowed to a love song entitled Head Over Heels that infuse bells, a flat chord progression and echo-y ethereal lyrics. I couldn’t stop listening to this cd for weeks so I’ll give you a taste of what I’m talking about.

  1. thanks for the excellent track. i saw him by chance playing at koko for club nme a little while back without realising who he was, he makes an excellent one man band and addictive listening.

  2. Oh I’m so jealous! Who was he opening for or was he the main act?
