Overgrown Biography
2013

It all started, says James Blake, with Joni Mitchell.

His favorite singer and songwriter came to see him at the Troubadour in Los Angeles two years ago and hung around afterwards to talk.

"She's an oracle," smiles James. "I learned a lot just from meeting her."

What they talked about most was the idea of ... Read more in Amazon's James Blake Store

Editorial Reviews

2011 EP, the follow-up to the British electronic artist's successful self-titled debut album. Alongside four original compositions are a cover of Joni Mitchells' `A Case Of You' and James' collaboration with Bon Iver. The remaining four pieces of music are solely James Blake compositions with Blake handling the writing, instrumentation, vocals and production for the tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice mini-album/companion to the debut album November 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
James Blake seemingly came out of nowhere in 2010 with a couple of vinyl EP releases that quickly created a sizable buzz and eventually lead to the release of his debut album earlier this year. Now only 6 months later already comes a new release.

"Enough Thunder" (6 tracks; 26 min.) continues the electronic minimalist sound of earlier releases, and to great effect. The opening track "Once We All Agree" is the first of several piano-based tracks on here (albeit with plenty other stranger sounds). "We Might Feel Unsound" is probably my favorite track on here, entirely electronic, and with interesting underlying pulses. "Fall Creek Buys Choir" is a new track co-written and co-performed with Justin Vernin (a/k/a Bon Iver), and I'm quite sure you've never heard Bon Iver like this, it's yet miles further away than their recent self-titled is from "For Emma"). As is the custom for James Blake, he includes a cover on this release as well, namely Joni Mitchell's "A Case Of You" (from her "Blue" album"), but Blake transposes the singer/guitar setting to a singer/piano setting. Other than changing it from guitar to piano, it is a surprisingly straight take on the song, and not my favorite moment on this release (this track was originally recorded for a BBC 1 show earlier this year). "Not Long Now" is probably the most "traditional", as in: electronic/chill sounding track on here. This release concludes with the title track, and again is just Blake and his piano.

In all, I quite like this release (don't call it an "EP", as it's only 12 min. shorter than the album released earlier this year, how about a "mini-album?), even though it is not quite as strong as the debut album, which surely will end up high on my "Albums of the Year" list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hitting his stride November 5, 2011
By D
Format:Audio CD
James Blake's excellent cover of "A Case of You" is easily my favorite of any of his songs that I've heard, and a couple other tracks on this EP (especially "Enough Thunder") are nearly as great as that song. I love this quiet, piano-driven style and traditional lyrical framing much, much better than the beats and repetitive lyrics of his self-titled album. I enjoy that album too, but I think its best tracks are the ones that are similar in style to the ones on this EP. I hope he makes a full length album that sounds like this. It's slow burning music to be listened to at night with the lights out, to be sure, but as far as I'm concerned that's not a bad thing at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Continued Greatness October 16, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
James Blake picked up where his self-titled album left off. This album is patient with many repetitions and subtle surprises. It takes a few listens to realize he is still experimenting and that this album goes even further than his last towards a new musical direction. His singing and the production of his vocals are even better than his last. There are no real pop tracks on this album, but it's subtle innovation keep it interesting for multiple listens. Again, his lyrics don't really stand out- most of the time I'm not sure what he's saying, but they are adequate enough to capture a mood. He also covers a female vocalist again and seems to excel at it-this time with joni mitchell's 'A Case of You'.

This record is great on it's own merits, but it has also proven to be a powerful aphrodisiac as well. Yes, I also reviewed Overgrown this way.

5.0 out of 5 stars James B(lake)-Sides November 1, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
In terms of genre, it is hard to put a single word on was Mr.Blake is trying to convey. In this case, the best way to describe it on his terms would be experimental. Not quite dub-step, not quite a big dance tune, not quite a ballad. Just an electronic and harmonic space.

That's definitely something to love about James Blake. He manages to produce a wonderful "space" in his music. One minute the music is phasing his electronic rhodes and auto-tuned voice in all directions then two tracks later he is singing a cover of Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You." Dude has range! Some standout tracks are:

1. "Once We All Agree" - Repetitious lyrics and chords. This is a song that, when in the right state of mind, one can become completely lost.

2. "We Might Feel Unsound" - Again, Blake doesn't stray from repetition but this time it has more of a pulse. The tone is a new extention of the previous track with tight drums answering to one another.

4. "A Case of You" - A big favorite of fans and Blake alike, this is a fantastic cover of Blake's favorite artist Joni Mitchell. He sings beautifully and with such conviction.

James Blake clearly creates the music that he wants to make. There are no outside influences twisting his sound into something more palatable, consumable, or sellable. If you enjoyed Blake's first album then give this one a chance. Don't be so swift to shut it out. And remember, keep your ears open!
