I always thought James Blake's Achilles heel, or his "James Blilles heel" if you will, was his quietness. Obviously, that's what you buy into with JB, but I thought it was such a shame that CMYK, a beatier track, was left off his debut album. Maybe I'm still bitter that James Blake once killed my computer.
His new single sits I Need A Forest Fire neatly between James Blake quietness, or "James Blietness" if you will, and something a bit more substantial. And it's got a hook that will nestle in your memory for some time. I like.
Here's the single edit (or "James Blingle edit" if you will). Enjoy.
