#34/100 – James Blake – Overgrown

Lucky to see James Blake, with Falty DL opening, then going to see Bonobo…on my birthday, at which time I bought this record. A very good one, and I listened to Side D, or Side B (II) as it’s labeled.

To the Last is my track pick, over Our Love Comes Back, which is a long favorite. To the Last just has even more of that “James Blake sound” that I like. That’s no small thing. It does remind me that the window of his fame’s influence was a bit longer than I expected. Only the awkward Take A Fall For Me featuring RZA pollutes this album with faux relevance.
