If you enjoy James Blake, chances are you'll dig the stark, melancholic atmospheres another, even younger Londoner dabbles in. Jamie Isaac
is only 18 years old, but the aspiring producer/songwriter is beginning to make strides in the UK with a sound that hones familiar programmatic cracks and snaps, distant plumes of piano, and ghostly vocals. "Softly Draining Seas", featured below, sounds like the skeletal remains of something greater, slowly left to wilt and decay over time in the threatening, natural environment that houses it. In such corrosion lies beauty though, which is why we're giving Mr. Isaac an early nod - at least on this side of the Atlantic - of approval. His introduction of songs dubbed, Will Be Cold Soon
, was just released so do seek it out.
