    He posted a sampler from his upcoming album. It's really unfair to judge an album from an 11 minute sampler, but that's not stopping me. Gotta say, everything (seems to) pale in comparison to his stunning cover of "Limit to Your Love" (man I love that cover). Getting the feeling he's going to be a strong producer but mediocre songwriter. I hope I'm wrong; I'll happily eat crow on this one if I am.




    Oh and I'm not trying to flame any "rumors", I just didn't think this was worth starting a new James Blake thread for.

    That crunching noise you hear is the sound of me eating my hat. Glad I was wrong. Man, this "new" song is just gorgeous. This kid is so talented. Don't know how GV scewed up this one; was clearly a no brainer for this year. Can't think of another British artist that has more buzz this year (not to mention talent to back that buzz up).

    I adore this album.

    edit: (especially the progression of "I never learnt to share") that drop is so great.

    Blake signs to Universal Republic

    URB MAGAZINE:
    Few artists are generating hype right now as much as James Blake, the post-dubstep producer whose dreamy fusion of sincere songcraft and minimal electronics makes girls swoon as much as it makes boys blog. Today, it was announced that Blake has signed to major label Universal Republic in the U.S., and his self-titled debut album will drop in America NEXT WEEK! This of course sets-up Blake to get exposed to an audience well beyond the niche fans who spent 2010 playing Blake’s releases on Belgium techno imprint R&S on repeat. It also means there’s a good chance that by the end of 2011, those same underground fans will be distancing themselves from their early praise should Blake become as popular as, say, James Blunt—another artist who briefly gained the adoration of the arbiters of cool before blowing up in the mainstream. You be the judge…

    I believe so, but having never heard the leaked version I cannot say whether this one is any different than the first.

    In any case, this album is really quite something, one that is bound to be on many year-end lists for 2011. I am not so sure I'd want to see at Coachella, though - his music seems better suited for an indoor venue where there isn't the possibility of it being drowned out by something louder nearby.

    A record like this doesn't come without some controversy. There are those who are wary of Blake seemingly repackaging dubstep for the dinner-party circuit. If it's true that Blake's angelic looks haven't exactly hindered his passage overground, this is an album more likely to curdle cream than sit nicely on the coffee table. Blake grew up playing piano; his return to that instrument after a few years blowing holes in his eardrums is an inspired lateral shimmy.

    Remember Ross playing keyboard in Friends. It's pretty much that.

    They are not his "back up band" or even his first choice backing band - just so you know.
