Without a doubt, and as we have seen in the last few weeks, the artists are taking the breed in these moments so tense that we are living. Either glittery clothing that is new or armando concerts by streaming, any way to make it possible for they as well as us to have an enjoyable time while we are in quarantine. The one that surprised us with its show virtual was James Blake as we spent nothing to make the lloración with the emotional set that you threw.
Now the musician and producer English he returned to surprise everyone with a small presentation through its account of Instagram. As we did last time, and transmitting, from the comfort of your home, played a selection of very well curated of songs with just a piano and his melodious voice, you know, the only thing that for now has to hand the wanted to James Blake.
On this occasion he decided to sing for all of us to some tracks from albums that we love from his discography, as “Life Round Here” and “Retrogade” of the Overgrown or “Are You In Love?” and “I’ll come Too” from their most recent record material, Assume Form, versions much more calm and beautiful, ideal to relax these days. Although, of course, noticed that he played a previously unissued song called “Say What You Will”, a beautiful ballad that no doubt will love from beginning to end.
However what came as a surprise to all of the first concert I gave on-line is that you threw in a few covers is quite interesting, showing a bit of the influences that have James Blake. In the last episode threw grounders Billie Eilish, Frank Ocean and Radiohead, now decided to extend the catalog by touching other group versions that left us with the eye squared.
To start with, shoved “Georgia On My Mind”, one of the classics of the legendary Ray Charlesalthough the thing would change completely, when suddenly, and sitting at the piano they threw their own version of “Atmosphere” of the great Joy Division. If that was not enough of that variety of grounders, he also played “Forward” –his collaboration with Beyoncé– and he closed with “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack.
