Folk + Electronica = Folktronica

My only previous experience to the genre was Beth Orton, but now I have a new artist to add to my list:  James Yuill.  His single "No Surprise" has great electronic melodies accompanied with his fantastic guitar playing.  The song recalls the loneliness of unrequited love, the electronic elements add a special something to the song that makes it more than just a saccharine singer/songwriter love song.  But, the UK wonder boy pulls it all together into a sweet, cohesive pop song.
