new Altar Of Plagues vid has me intrigued, seem to be moving away from the post-black metal thing to a more industrial weirder direction and theyre usually interesting concept wise, cool to see the likes of pitchfork plugging them now too, I remember this bands first ever gig
James Blake's self-titled debut LP was a stripped down, skeletal exploration of human emotion; a scrapbook of thoughts and feelings where the fractured snare taps and sporadic bass notes served as little more than nods of agreement with Blake's soulful rhetoric. Despite requiring a certain degree of patience to fully appreciate, It was an ambitious and rewarding album, appealing to fans of electronic, indie and soul music alike. The success of that record pushed the young London-based producer into the spotlight and earned him a Mercury Prize nomination in the process, but, in the two years since that release, Blake has moved on.
Oh shit I didn't even know there was a new James Blake album. I'll have to get on that. First one was great. Would never have known there was a new Foals album out without this thread. Album totally delivered btw.
