That's quite a long title but here's the gist of it:
There's a guy called James Yuill. He's a singer-songwriter with diverse influences ranging from the folk-rock ballads of Nick Drake to more progressive productions turned out by the likes of Radiohead and the Chemical Brothers (but who hasn't been influenced by Radiohead?).
His folktronica sound blends traditional acoustics and down tempo vocals with digital sounds and techno enhancements.
Anyway today he releases a new digital version of his debut album Turning Down Water For Air.
Turning Down Water For Air: Earth & Fire Versions is a re-recording of Yuill’s entire debut album; he actually turned each track on its head to create new versions in the opposing style to that in which they were originally conceived.
Stand-out tracks like “No Pins Allowed,” “No Surprise,” and “This Sweet Love,” which were originally more electronic-tinged are now stripped down and called “Earth Versions.” The folkier original album tracks like “How Can I Lose” and “You Always Do” are now laced with an electronic edge, making these “Fire Versions.”
