James Blake - Measurements

. Thursday, June 10

Last month I talked about James Blake's CMYK and the way in which it rubbed disparate sounds up against one another, creating unique visions in the impending friction. Well who knew that upstairs from the laboratory in which Aaliyah and Kelis were being welded to one another lay a bed of roses and tranquility? 'Measurements' shows more than a new side to Blake, it shows us a whole new dimension. Stripped back to its very barest bones his voice, heard here for the first time, aches with soul and hangs heavy in amongst the acapella backdrop. Where this mad talent is leading Blake is anyones guess, trailing in his wake is going to be what it's all about.
