Video: James Blake’s ‘Wilhelms Scream’

I just love the hazy, out-of-focus look to this video for James Blake’s “The Wilhems Scream” from his forthcoming self-titled full-length album. This album is pretty durn great at times — moody, dark, minimal but man, can Blake sing. His voice is a mix of Antony’s warbling croon and the affected, pained falsetto of Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.

Also be sure to check out the video for “Limit To Your Love:”

Both songs are highlights from Blake — who looks to be one of the breakout stars of 2011.
