James Blake Played Live

Though his live debut was supposed to be January 14th at London’s Plan B, it seems James Blake has jumped the gun and last week performed a set opening for Everything Everything in Manchester at the Royal Northern College of Music. Blake, backed up with a drummer and guitarist, played piano and keyboard and sang, doing songs from his self-titled February debut. Audience video for “Wilhelm’s Scream” (jam) is above, with his Feist cover, “Limit to Your Love,” “Unluck” and a minute and a half of an Auto-Tuned solo track a la “Woods” is after the jump. Kanye collab far away?

    Beautiful! But please don’t confuse a auto-tuner for a vocoder . Nothing that great has come from an auto-tuner. And I hope we’ll never see a solo auto-tuner track. There aren’t very many other great solo vocoder tracks. But this closely follows the formula that Laurie Anderson created with “O’ Superman” in 1981, and Imogen Heap explored and perfected with “Hide and Seek” in 2005.
