James Blake (self-titled)

"Looking out into the sold-out Music Hall of Williamsburg, Blake's first words were 'Oh, hi! Thanks for coming,' before breaking into his set. Blake's style of music is a hybrid of experimental dub step, lo-fi, and electronica and his lyrics show his vulnerability, passion and sensitivity. Only releasing his self-titled debut last month, he has become a critical favorite, and now on his first trip to America and at his debut US show, Blake is a fan favorite" (Salvatore Bono, "British Buzz Boy James Blake Arrives in Brooklyn," Huffington Post, 3/15/11).
