Listen to two new James Blake songs from the upcoming “Overgrown”By Alan Cox | March 7th, 2013 | 1 Comment »

Two new James Blake songs have surfaced on the Internet, both from the British producer’s upcoming album “Overgrown.” The first is a dub of “Vouyer,” ripped from Benji B’s BBC 1 radio show.
One can never quite tell what’s going on when the unheard music is dubbed, but the impression of the real song is another simple, minimalist examination on love and loving.
“Digital Lion” is rhythmically focused and deploys a wide and varied instrumentation. Better yet, and a true testament to Blake’s talent, is each instrument’s nuanced delivery, from the subdued snare drums in the abrupt bridge to the flickering guitar chords in the background of a single verse.
Not satisfied with Blake’s new songs? Don’t forget that he just released the music video for the album’s first single, “Retrograde.” He’s also about to set out on an international tour, which stops in Denver at the Ogden Theatre on April 28. Stay tuned to Reverb for more as we near the April 8 release of “Overgrown” via Atlas/Republic.
