After a string of excellent 12″s and EPs for the Hemlock, Hessle Audio, and Brainmath labels, the soulful dubstep-rooted tunesmith known as James Blake will follow up his CMYK EP with another release for the R&S label, called Klavierwerke. If you don’t know German and haven’t headed to your favorite online translator yet, that title is “piano works,” which is only a slight misnomer. The four tracks on Blake’s forthcoming EP may only have bits of piano sounds on them, but much of the melodies found within those moody, preciously composed bass music pieces sound either written with or inspired by the age-old instrument. You can listen to bits of Klavierwerke before R&S releases the EP on October 10, here, and check out the artwork and tracklist below. (via FACT)
