Up in '11: James Blake

After a series of ambient instrumental EPs, its suddenly revealed that
James Blake can properly sing. His new cover of Feist's Limit To Your Love is sublime, especially in his use of silence throughout the song, a trick which gives him a strange sort of... control over the listener. Blake, 22, is signed to Polydor Records; Limit To Your Love is on iTunes UK now with an album out in February 2011. He'll be on tour in the UK and Europe in December.

AND... he's just made it to BBC's Sound of 2011

Is he the guy who sang that Human League cover with Darkstar?

I was just saying how I felt out of touch for not knowing of any of the Sound of 2011 folks and here is the first one! Lovely cover and video.
