James Blake

I want you all to take your hands, take them up your neck either side of your head, keep going... whats that? Something in your way? Fleshy little head handles? They are ears mate. Pretty useful little buggers, and while wiggling them up and down (a skill known by only a few among us, wizards of the lobe) for the entertainment of young children is one of those uses, listening is the other.

What you choose to listen to is entirely up to you of course (except in those dire circumstances where by the audio space around you is being held hostage by a screaming child or DIY enthusiast neighbour), but if you're looking for a suggestion as to what to expose yourself to next then here is mine...

The Album, entitled 'Overgrown' was released yesterday, and I have retreated into it's beautiful all encompassing sound at every given opportunity. I don't feel like I'm able to describe Blake's sound in a way that justifies his genius, so if you have a spare 5 minutes, give him a listen. You'll love him or think I'm talking total bollocks but ya might as well give it a go though eh?
