Free Canon Blue EP available for download

Canon Blue (aka Daniel James), is an artist on the label Rumraket, which is also where you can find arists such as Grizzly Bear, Slaraffenland and Amiina - the label itself is run by Efterklang.

I hadn't heard any of his music until I got word that his new "Halcyon" EP was available for a free download, so I pressed play without any preconceptions - I can't express how great it is to discover an artist this way, without any pressure or hype from industry-bodies.

Basically, James writes acoustic/folk music, but covers the lo-fi nature of it all with an electronic veneer. And that's all I'm going to say - I want you to judge for yourself. Consider it an early Christmas present.
