Good morning friends. As many of you know already, I keep a list of artists with albums out in 2010. Every time I find out about a new release I write the name down (but I typically avoid releases more than two weeks into the future). Accordingly, every time there has been a library update I search for the names in Spotify. This procedure makes it possible to quickly find releases added weeks or even months too late…
A recent addition to my secret list, which currently features 99 artists, was guitarist James Blackshaw and three days ago his latest album was added. The genre here is a mix of folk and contemporary classical and the album is quite good. Enjoy!
Good morning. His latest album was released digitally earlier this year and two days ago it was finally added to Spotify. The genre is ambient/contemporary classical. Enjoy Jóhann Jóhannsson!
(And just look at that album cover! Beautiful, just like the music.)
(Thanks to a very kind reader for the tip.)
