Dudes With Blurry Faces

Not only am I jumping on the solo-artist-wagon, which is just as bad as the bandwagon, but I’m also a little late. Thing is, while avalanches of media praise tend to piss me off, it’s really the un-deserved or overhyped aspect of the barrage that suffocates me. The two artists I’m shouting out today are fully deserving, and while I may be a few months past the crucial blogosphere instant-hype deadline, I truly believe these are songs that will stay with me for a long time. Minimal, moody, bass heavy, acoustic-meets-glitch. These latest albums from The Weeknd and James Blake are helping me hear the future.

p.s.– I cleaned up our blogroll links. Got rid of dead ones and added a couple newbies. Click away and continue your mp3 quest.

The Weeknd :       High For This &       The Morning
Crooning like the best of em.  This is my new favorite sex album, and it’s free.

James Blake :       Wilhelms Scream &       Limit To Your Love (Feist cover)
From his debut full-length. Check his 4 prior EP’s for more of the craziness.

Untold :       Stop What You're Doing (James Blake Remix)
Little something extra that I pulled off this dubstep comp.

    Limit to your love is one of the best tunes I’ve heard in ages…..the album is a grower, with some instantly good tunes and some that have taken me a few listens to like.

    just d/ling The Weeknd album, will report back. Cheers Chuck!!

    hey, great call on all three. I’m a big Untold and James Blake fan, but never heard of The Weekend. Great call.
