KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are in the here and now, but I'm not exactly sure where ? I suspect either Los Angeles or London, anyone know ? Anyway, it's for James Blake's latest, "Say What You Will", to be released on his "Friends That Break Your Heart" LP September 10th on Republic...
"My #1 son Jack played me this a few weeks back and I have continued to listen to it quite regularly ever since. I can't say I stay on top of what Mr Blake does, but every so often he will produce something that I really like. There's no denying he's a talent. His falsetto on this one reminds me of Roy Orbison, as does the songs underlying sadness - what the Italians describe as "Morbidezza. There's obviously some humour being displayed here - but "Many a true word said in jest" KV
