I love James Blake, and man, this new record of his is KILLER aurally. I am THOROUGHLY enjoying it.
I won’t lie and act like I totally understand what is going on in this video — end of the world? Aliens? Biker aliens? — but the visual itself is dark and a bit haunting (and matches the song).
James Blake’s last album was a favorite. Sometimes you have to find the song that fits your mood and that clicks with you at that moment, but with “Retrograde”, I can listen to this anytime. It feels a bit more accessible than the tunes from his last eponymous album. His new body of work Overgrown drops in April, and I’m looking forward to it.
I honestly cannot stop listening to “Retrograde” and I think you won’t be able to either after this first spin. Let me know if I’m wrong.
These darn Brits are taking over!
