In a few words:
Perry Blake is a very talented singer and songwriter. His self-titled album was released at 1998 and was quite successful. Having a music style that starts from trip-hop and goes to ambient, alternative and even folk music, the album contains very interesting and experimental music. His voice fits excellent to the atmosphere of the songs. Similar singers that come to my mind are Leonard Cohen, Scott Walker, and  David Sylvian. The album is emotional, dark and melancholic. Furthermore, the music sometimes reminds soundtrack. That's why is not surprising the fact that his music has been used to Presque rien (2000) and Trois Petites Filles (2004) films. Another good album for night-listening is here. 


Personal highlights:
"Little Boys And Little Girls", "Anouska" and "Weeping Tree"
