James Blake – Curbside
Oh man…prolific english producer James Blake takes the word experimental to a whole other level with this new track Curbside. His new EP titled Love What Happened Here, will contain 3 songs. The EP is scheduled to drop on December 11th. Ever since I heard his track CYMK I’ve really been into Blake’s stuff. I especially loved his self-titled debut LP. I didn’t really get a chance to listen to his new album Enough Thunder, but I’m sure that if I did I wouldn’t hate it. Now James Blake seems to be the kind of guy that doesn’t like to focus on one thing only. If you look at his discography you’ll find at least six totally different styles of music, ranging from some piano melody driven tracks to a dubstep cover of a Feist track. Now this new track Curbside just left astonished. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it left me questioning my life decisions. Alright maybe I am going a little overboard. But more seriously, this track seems to have no structure. It starts out with some pretty basic rock type drums and then it leads into some eerie vocals along with what seems to be a kazoo??? This track is definitely not going to please every James Blake fans out there, especially the ones who jumped on the bandwagon after hearing tracks like The Wilhelm Screams or etc. If I had to compare it to something that he produced in the past, I’d have to say that it resembles a little bit his two-sided record he put out a while back titled Order/Pan which was experimental as well. Now I can’t say that I totally hate this track, but I have to admit that I listened to it at least 6 times before actually enjoying it. So here it is, James Blake’s new track Curbside. Tell me what you think!
And of course enjoy!
