2 February 2015 - James Newton Chadwick - Oblivion

I don't know who James Newton Chadwick is, but after hearing how well he covered Grimes's "Oblivion", I want to know more.  The original is very much a keyboard song, an electronic masterpiece.  Chadwick turned it into a folk music classic, without resorting to cheap Grimes impersonation, which would have been the easy route.

I expect to explore more of his music in the coming weeks.
