James Blackshaw - Love is the Plan, the Plan is Death (2012)

Important Records is proud to welcome back James Blackshaw for his first full-length album since O'True Believers, released in 2006. Blackshaw has since forged a remarkable career, achieving critical praise for his dexterity, deep songwriting, and beautiful arrangements. The six original pieces contained on the album are based alternately around nylon-string classical guitar and grand piano, with spare and subtle vibraphone and B3 organ parts overdubbed by Blackshaw himself. "Love Is The Plan" is an incredibly warm and intimate recording, and perhaps Blackshaw's most concise, consistent, and overtly melodic to date.
