James Blake may be new in town, but he sure as hell makes a good first impression.

3.5 greatRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | February 14th 16

On his second EP, James Blake begins to evolve and experiment with the base sound he established with Air & Lack Thereof. Right from the get-go, there is a lot more going on, with skippy vocals/samples and glitchy beat work interweaving within a light and airy atmosphere. The closer of the record, "Give A Man A Rod", features an innovative tactic of merging some of the cornerstones of the genre with his more experimental and forward-thinking vision of it. Overall, it's a marked improvement and an impressive evolution for James Blake, one that he would continue to build off of as the years went by.
