I stumbled onto this incredible shoegaze artist a couple weeks ago and have since decided he’s a keeper.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with this new song, “Strange Feeling”. It’s just him with electric guitar and maybe a little synth or sample padding in the background and it’s gorgeous, and then there’s the lyrics, which are so simple and innocent that they send shivers down my spine: “I knew a man/who was shaking some hands/I tell everybody, oh what a man/I met tonight/He was smart and very kind.”

You can stream all his songs off his website. That wasn’t good enough for me so I bought Collection of Porcelain. The song below, however, is available as a free download.
