Ask yourself this, is there a more obvious metaphor for playing around with darker themes than naming your album after a material that is literally darker than the namesake of your last album? No, of course not, unless you’re willing to title your record “SAD SONGS” and put a big crying face on the cover, along with a complimentary vial of tears […]

Listeners of Jame Blake’s debut long playing effort fell into two rough categories, the first of which were drawn in by his uber kawaii Topman looks and the promise of a dubstep record which wouldn’t result in YouTube comments declaring it the dirtiest thing this side of a Catholic priests fantasy (arf arf arf). The other, an ill tempered group […]
