James Blake’s debut album has sharply divided many fans of his earlier EPs, and it will be intriguing to see how the sales go down this week following its swift U.S. release on Universal Republic. The curious can still check out a sampling of Blake’s work via this link, which has clips from the record streaming.
Now, Blake is set to raise his profile on this side of the Atlantic with a few live dates to support the album, which principally involves a set of shows in Austin for SXSW. There are only five dates scheduled so far, beginning with a set at the Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 14 and then on into Texas.
