I know I am late to the party on this one but....this bloke is amazing.

Disclaimer: am just emerging from my musical cave after 4 years of enforced listening to Mr Tumble's Hands Up and other similar terrible shite.

For anyone who also likes James Blake, what other newish artists would you recommend I listen to? I do veer toward singer-songwriters usually - am a sucker for a soulful melody- but also like a bit of electronica. Help me find my groove again - please grin

How about the XX?

I like old school, so liking Bruno Mars and the daft punk one with Niles Rodgers and Pharrel.

and hate to admit it as the videos so ewwww but wrecking ball by Mileys not a bad song.

I really like James Blake too. I need to recommend Chelsea Wolfe an American singer/songwriter. Nothing like James Blake more sort of folky but really, really good.
Listen to a song called "Flatlands" it's absolutely gorgeous.

Oh, yep, listening to your Chelsea woman now. Love it already - good recommendation thanks. She's got an interesting voice and the arrangements are great.

Blaaahdeblahdeblah, just noticed that both James Blake and Chelsea Wolfe are playing at Jabberwocky on 15 August, at ExCeL. I may need to call in babysitting favours wink

I recently came across the band Warpaint on the BBC coverage of Glastonbury. They were superb.
