Inbox Wednesday - James Yuill

Moshi Moshi Records has been preaching to us about folktronica master James Yuill for many months now but it wasn't until his performance at last night's Moshi/Wichita Christmas party that I realised just how awesome he really is.

His debut album Turning Down Water for Air was released on October 13th and according to Moshi Moshi, it "fuses sweet and innocent acoustic melodies with some darkly introspective electronic magic." That's a pretty accurate description and predictably almost everyone seems to be labeling him the new Postal Service. However, there's more to Mr. Yuill's music than that. Check out the tracks below for yourself.
