Despite some silly comments and the revelation that one of the tracks of the year ‘The Wilhelm Scream’ is “heavily borrowed”, the self-titled James Blake album released last month is sure to be near the top of the list for 2011. Plus, let us remember he’s only a young lad.
Good news then, he plays Whelan’s this month on Tuesday March 29th. Tickets are just €15 plus fees on sale this Saturday. Get in. What I love about his music is that he falls between torchlighting piano troubadour and fascinating producer as these tracks demonstrate. I just hope he keeps the balance.
