A defining moment for electronic music across the board, Burial's sophomore album evokes a state of continuous bliss under grey skies.
In January, James Blake released the mellow, atmospheric single “If the Car Beside You Moves Ahead.” Now he has followed it up with “Don’t Miss It,” a collaboration with Mount Kimbie’s Dominic Maker. The tender ballad has a similarly glitchy aesthetic to its predecessor and features self-reflective lyrics over an instrumental that centers around piano and electronic drums. The vocals are pitch shifted and frenetic, but sound incredibly emotional nonetheless.
In addition to his own singles, James Blake worked on “King's Dead” from the Black Panther OST and played piano on André 3000’s recent single “Look Ma No Hands.” Blake’s last album, The Colour in Anything, came out in 2016. He has not yet announced a follow-up.
Sampha's debut album was worth the wait.
Singer-songwriter and producer James Blake returns three years after this sophomore effort, delivering a surprisingly lengthy and disjointed album.
Jamie xx makes an enjoyable splash with his debut full-length.
Though not as much of a bombardment as his previous album, Room(s), Vapor City is a pretty enjoyable and diverse album from electronic music producer Machinedrum. Plus, it features some of his best singles yet!
