Top-20 countdown - no.10

James Blake - James Blake

What can I say for someone who has done covers of two of my all-time favourite artists (Joni Mitchell and Feist) with incredible results? Who writes songs that find their way into your heart in a nanosecond? Whose music has an aesthetic aspect that you identify so much with? This album, although not perfect, is a gorgeous debut that bodes so well for his future. Even though people said it was a bit disappointing compared to his many EPs that proceeded it, I find it unique, haunting, exceptional.

So far:

11. Little Dragon - Ritual Union
12. P.J. Harvey - Let England Shake
13. Scott Matthew - Gallantry's Favorite Son
14. Bon Iver - Bon Iver
15. Patrick Wolf - Lupercalia
16. Gotye - Making Mirrors
17. Austra - Feel It Break
18. Soley - We Sink
19. Cat's Eyes - Cat's Eyes
20. St. Vincent - Strange Mercy
