James Blake – Digital Lion
Immediately following from James Blake‘s “Voyeur” leak – a rip from Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show – we get treated to “Digital Lion,” a compelling number featuring composer Brian Eno. “Digital Lion” is a sonic journey melding the artist’s styles both past and present. While the eerie reverbs and nimbus vocals are reminiscent of Blake’s more recent releases, a nerve-wrecking tempo picks up midway nodding at formative experimental releases on R&S. The result in an exhilarating piece, sure to satisfy those who enjoyed the softer sounds of ” The Wilhelm Scream” as well as fans of his earlier industrial odes. Enjoy “Digital Lion” and get ready for Overgrown, his forthcoming LP due April 8.
