James Blake gave a scorching, bass-drenched, sold out show at The Metro in Chicago last night. He mostly stuck to material from his latest, fantastic album Overgrown, but performed a few of his older crowd pleasers like CMYK, Limit To Your Love and I Never Learnt To Share. He also DJ’d downstairs at Smart Bar (a Sound Bastards favorite!) afterwards, but it was way past my bedtime. See him live if you get the chance!
Limit To Your Love
A heavenly blend of instrumental hip hop, atmospheric downtempo, murky trip hop and synthed-out electro.
