This week’s up and coming KZUU favorite is the infectious James Blake. His releases last year (Klavierewerke, and CMYK) generated an insane amount of buzz for his production talent as well as his beautiful falsetto voice on the Limit to Your Love 7″. Following an unprecedented (anyone else sick of that word?) amount of buzz and expectations, Blake has smashed them all, creating a full-length record that differs in sound from his previous works while still being one of the more creative and unique albums in recent memory. Fusing dubstep stylings with minimalistic soul and R&B influences, James Blakes’ self titled debut album is one for the ages.
Check out “The Wilhelm Scream” below, and make sure to play the album on your show this week!
