James Blake ‘Retrograde’
‘Retrograde’ is the first single off of the upcoming sophomore album from James Blake, Overgrown. From what you just listened to (hopefully you listened to it or else why even come to this page?) it sounds like it’s going to be a worthy follow up. His mix of soul and dubstep/electronica is the perfect chillin’ music, and is soothing to my soul. Also did I mention that this music video is also pretty cool. You should probably watch it again.
Lianne La Havas – Is Your Love Big Enough?
Here is a video you should watch. It features, up and coming singer songwriter, Lianne la Havas strolling through the streets of Paris belting out her soulful, folky music. That was all I needed to see to get hooked. Is Your Love Big Enough? continues to showcase Leanne’s talent for songwriting with slow jazzy songs like “Lost & Found,” and upbeat funky songs like the title track “Is Your Love Big Enough?,” and everything in between. Clearly this girl is a very talented guitar player and a great singer and I think this album is a fantastic collection of songs that could lead to some big things in the future for Lianne La Havas.
