Informal Review: James Blake – S/T

James Blake-S/T
He’s got a voice that sounds like a cross between Bon Iver and Antony, and like Iver, he’s not afraid to Auto Tune it to aesthetic effect. What I like most about Blake is his ability to write very fragile melodies that often feel wispy, like they’re about to blow away or resolve themselves in the quietest manner possible. But it’s also a narcotic, a lonely soundscape album that is a little too sleepy for me. But “Give Me My Month” is almost unbearably beautiful.
