James Blake – Modern Soul


While the rest of the world was pre-occupied with one of the worst album rollouts of all time, Kayne West’s “favorite artist” quietly premiered a new song off his upcoming album during his show on BBC Radio 1. “Modern Soul” sees a return to Blake’s signature style, albeit with notably fresh flavors. Key loops bounce and flutter, while Blake’s effortless and soulful confessions absolutely drip with emotion. The album will surely be one of the best of the year, so put Blake back in your rotation and go for a long, long walk.
