holds up really well imo. probably still my favourite album of 2011. i think it's cool as well how he still releases music on R&S alongside his singer/songwriter style music.
but the album was also my album of 2011 and i think he could come back with another masterpiece
the EPs were really strong in fact. Hated the album though.
but everything he released on R&S and Hessle is amazing
He's had like 8 awsome 12" singles/EPs if I remember right.
Air & Lack Thereof was on hessle for some reason. Anyway guess it's time to buy that Airhead split I just found out about
I persuaded a bunch of mates to go see his post-headline slot at Latitude. I kept insisting it was great even though it wasn't.
You're such a guy
dubstep just wasn't QUITE boring enough at that point, something had to be done
is on the album, is a million miles from MOR and is way better than any of his Hemlock, Hessle, R&S, Brainmath releases IMHO
Yes, that's right. He is only 23 years old.
Come back and write in this thread when he is 30.
That's all I have to say.
yes, he might be 24, because he was 22 in 2011.
Let' see what his new album is like in 2013 before pronouncing profundities, shall we?
..but it's obvious the guy's got talent. Whatever he does in the future might turn out to be great. Just accept it. :)
over and over again. but some people only pay attention to albums, and assume the boring torch songs 'n' bass is all he is.
the media hype around it was tedious, and the album pretty disappointing all in all but with some very good bits. He's a promising young musician, but these days if you don't get it right first time you're ripped to shreds
about artists who predominantly release on those formats, though?
...which means a 7/10 or thereabouts.
too much hate on these boards.
but as has been said above, those eps were remarkable and still sound good
but since you listen to pretty-as-hell, slightly wet japanese classical music (thoug I like it myself) as opposed to harsh noise or whatever, it sort of doesn't work.
hich is good, really. Hooray for Jordan
theres just others that know much more about certain genres and post a lot about them on here (theshipment with dance, mehodor with nu-metal) so i leave it to them.
at a recent talk in Manchester David Byrne was asked about the last time he heard something that really blew his mind that was contemporary. he said James Blake. he was talking about the idea that 'Punk' or something like it could happen again and seemed very keen on the young fella. so there you go.
my favourite thing about him was on here i think, when he was complaining about skrillex et al not being tr00 dubsteppy, someone was like, "I wonder what tr00 dubsteppy is to James Blake?" and someone just replied "Feist covers" and I was really amused.
I love Feist.
The kid is a natural talent, and I love his music.
I'm just saying.
I think I like the *idea* of his music more than the music itself.
