james blackshaw

"...his first Young God album, “The Glass Bead Game”, continues Blackshaw’s hot streak that has stretched for four or five years now. This one has five longish to epic tracks, two of which feature Blackshaw on piano, a development of the work he initiated on “Litany Of Echoes”….The sound this time is a little fuller, a little more orchestrated, a little further away from the folk/Takoma school tag he was first saddled with, but his grace-filled compositional style remains more or less consistent...gorgeous, pensive...an extraordinary album" john mulvey

Oustanding blog you have there! I'm a great fan of your posts, and I have your blog added to my faves a long time ago. Please if you have the time check out my blog Opaque Destination. It's not a musical blog, it is about image and words, but I think it is somehow related...maybe we could trade links... C'ya!

Será un placer ver a James Blackshaw antes de Current 93 el próximo sábado… va a ser una gran noche.

P.S.: Me ha alegrado verme en "hacen cosas bonitas". Gracias.

You say he was 'saddled' with the Takoma tag like its a bad thing. That is his roots!
