James Blake has become very well-known the past few years, so I expect many of you will be familiar with this song already. He’s one of the best young artists out, and I expect a long and groundbreaking career from him. “Retrograde” is the lead single from his second album, Overgrown, which is one of this year’s best albums and a marked growth from his self-titled debut. The synth-horns coming in at around 1:40 is one of my favorite musical moments of any album this year. The video is very apocalyptic and English.
Get Overgrown here.
