James Blake
Press James Blake
UK-based post-dubstep producer James Blake plays his moody and textured, glitchily layered loops, jazzy piano chords and soulful, treated vocals as on his self-titled debut album. Also on the bill is the intense, radiantly lovely young English neofolksinger Laura Marling, whose latest, A Creature I Don't Know, an album that's already been hailed as a modern classic. It's not that it sounds old, though certainly the spirits of Joni Mitchell, Julie London, PJ Harvey and Fairport Convention loom large — more that you can imagine it being played in 20 years' time, and still sounding crisp and affecting. Highly recommended.
