James Blake - "Radio Silence"
When I saw James Blake’s The Colour of Everything had dropped, I decided to quickly run through it before bed. I ended up listening to the entire album—it's that good. But after it all, "Radio Silence" is the track I keep going back to.
Like "Retrograde," my personal favorite James Blake song, "Radio Silence" swells into a dramatic, out-of-this-world symphony of synths, howls, and percussion. The repetitive vocals are still looping in my head, and I can't wait to spend more time with the rest of this album. The downside of a great opener is that it makes it really hard to get past track one.–Jacob Moore
