James Blake: James Blake
Buy! - (Atlas/A&M)
James Blake emerged last year as an innovative, exciting artist with three diverse EPs that showcased his emotive, minimal style within an adventurous post-dubstep terrain. For his highly-anticipated debut full-length, the young, visionary UK musician continues his evolution away from dubstep and towards an emotionally-charged, electronic-accented sound that places the spotlight not only on his sparse, stunning production, but also on his remarkable and previously unused voice, a bold, soulful croon that closely recalls Bon Iver's Justin Vernon with a touch of Antony Hegarty. Stunning, beautiful stuff. 1/7/2011 - Alex
