Last month, London-based crooner and producer James Blake took his BBC Radio 1 residency as a chance to unveil a track entitled “Bloke” by an unknown artist named “Simon Tallywhacker.” Now confirmed and titled “Girl” and the so-called Tallywhacker is Jamie xx. “Girl” as previously announced, will be featured on Jamie’s 12″ single as a flip-side to “Sleep Sound.” Continuing the producer’s melodic use of percussions and hazy sample cues, “Girl” is another atmospheric effort toying with syncopated vocals and distant subs in its rendition. Listen to the cut here from James Blake’s latest show and look out for Girl/Sleep Sound to drop May 5 via Young Turks.
