While watching a video of James Blake concert in no way will ever compare to the awesomeness of seeing him live, this 90 minute concert Blake did at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. will more than suffice. Blake, who recently played the TLA returns to town on Monday, November 4th to Union Transfer. Go here for tickets. Video via NPR Music

British electronic / soul artist James Blake has announced an extended tour that brings him back to Philadelphia on November 4th for a show at Union Transfer. Blake was in town a couple of weeks ago for sold-out show at The TLA in support of his recent Overgrown LP – check out photos of that night here. Tickets and information for the fall tour will be available on the XPN Concert Calendar soon. In the meantime, watch a couple videos of James Blake below.
British electronic soul musician James Blake performed for a packed and enthusiastic crowd at The TLA on South Street last night. Blake’s second album, Overgrown, was released a month ago and he’s touring the states with his band in support of it. Check out scenes from last night’s show in the photo gallery above.
Electronic singer/songwriter James Blake stops by the Theatre of Living Arts tonight. In April, Blake released his sophmore album Overgrown. The new album brings back Blake’s beautiful voice and rhythmic electronics. Tickets and information for the all ages show can be found here. Below, check out the music video for “Retrograde” off of Blake’s new album Overgrown.
In the third video we’ve seen from James Blake‘s latest LP Overgrown, the electronic singer-songwriter takes a sleepwalking journey into the woods under a star-filled sky surrounded by cloaked figures. The video for “Overgrown” was directed by Nabil, who has worked with Bon Iver and Frank Ocean and who is currently working with Daft Punk. Overgrown, Blake’s follow-up to his 2010 self-titled debut, came out this week and was met with overwhelmingly positive reviews, among them top marks from Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound. James Blake will perform at The TLA on Saturday, May 11th; tickets and information can be found here. Watch the video for the title track to Overgrown below.
Ever wonder what it would be like if you could take a trip through the grooves of a record while it was spinning? What would you see? What would you hear? Illustrator and animator Ferry Gouw has done just that for you. What you hear, is a song by James Blake, “Voyeur,” a hypnotic deep groove and dub-divined new song from his forthcoming album, Overgrown, out on April 8th. What you see is some tripped-out animated digitalism – some serious Tron-like escapism in the video – not to mention a spectacular sounding song from Mr. Blake. Watch/listen below. Blake plays the TLA on Saturday, May 11th. Go here for tickets.
New songs keep trickling out of James Blake‘s camp – earlier this morning a radio rip / dub version of “Voyeur” made the rounds and now we have “Digital Lion” (featuring Brian Eno) streaming on the London electronic singer-songwriter / producer’s Soundcloud. Both tracks, in addition the previously tipped “Retrograde,” will appear on Blake’s forthcoming Overgrown LP, expected out April 8th on Republic Records. James Blake headlines The TLA on May 11th in support of the album; tickets and information for the all-ages show can be found here. Stream “Digital Lion” and the alternate take of “Voyeur” below.
