James Blake – “The Wilhelm Scream”

on February 02, 2011, 4:00pm

This past week, we recently named James Blake’s remarkable self-titled debut a CoS Top Star album, awarding it the solid five stars. The video debuted recently and it’s just as powerful. As writer Drew Litowitz says of “The Wilhelm Scream”: “With more straightforward singing, a standout among standouts, the powerful “Wilhelm’s Scream” displays James Blake’s precision and restraint in production and songcraft. Often, his minimal lyricism consists of phrases repeated so excessively that they become mantras, eventually losing their meaning, only to find them again. At first sung atop quiet and spare production, frozen, echoed industrial tones intermittently ringing out through the hollow space, Blake bleeds onto the track.
