With a new album under his belt—Overgrown is the follow-up to 2011's stunning debut—24-year-old Brit James Blake returns to the city for two big dates. Expect a set of his trademark sparse, dubstep-wobbled falsetto soul, with funky, R&B-flecked new material, and (fingers crossed) his lovely cover of Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You." To get you in the mood is NYC's ever-awesome FaltyDL—that's Drew Lustman to his mom—a bass-heavy beats maker who mixes house, glitch, drum ’n’ bass and dubstep to fine effect.
