NPR was kind enough to take HD footage of James Blake's show in Washington D.C. while at the 9:30 Club. Although his music is almost an acquired taste for some, fans can rest assured he sounds just as he does on James Blake and Overgrown -- a feat which is quite astonishing considering the electronic genre his music resides in. The vocals, looping, effects, and everything else in relation to his performance, are meticulous in their presentation, and more importantly, entertainingly beautiful.
This is last weekend's news but NBC did a real number on any quality videos of Kanye West's SNL performance by removing any and all versions except their US-only option. Performed are Kanye West's new songs entitled "New Slaves" and "Black Skinhead" from his upcoming album, Yeezus. You might question his ego, his overwhelming sense of self-importance, and his content, but at least he knows how to put on a show.
