Default English Folk

Can anyone recommend me some more of that British sounding folk like Nick Drake? I mean, I don't want exact replicas, but I feel like English folk tens do have the same feeling.

First three John Martyn albums are damn essential if you ask me.

John Martyn - 1960s and 1970s

Inuzuka if you want something a bit different, the Incredible String Band are brilliant. Quite psychedelic but pure folk

Most of the people who rip off Nick Drake (Andrew Bird, Iron & Wine) are American so um yeah. I guess Vashti Bunyan.

I can't find The Tumbler. That is my only problem right now, but don't send me it yet because I haven't checked Soulseek.
