[mp3] James Blake – Live at Maida Vale Studios

James Blake, the UK producer/songwriter/hype-cultivating phenom, is gearing up for the release of his self-titled debut full length, which comes after a series of ridiculously promising short-form 2010 releases, including the CMYK and Klavierwerke EPs.  If each previous release has focused on a specific area of Blake’s talent as a musician, producer, and composer, the new record proves his secret weapon to be his voice.  James Blake focuses squarely on Blake the enigmatic singer/songwriter, putting his vocals into some of the most patient, spacious settings imaginable.  He might be the only indie artist on myspace whose “melodramatic popular song” genre tag is completely un-ironic.  The album is a stunning piece of art for anyone to have made, but the fact that it comes from a man in his very early twenties is practically unfair.

Late last year Blake stopped by the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios and recorded 2 new songs (“Wilhelms Scream” and both parts of “Lindesfarne”) and his cover reimagining of Feist’s “Limit to Your Love” for a Radio One broadcast.  Download and listen, and be ready for Blake to own 2011.  James Blake comes out 2/7/11.  (via/via)
