Wilhelm Scream

Rapha rides for Japan, Maeda on craft, dry-transfer Field Notes and more in this week's online snapshot

Playing to a sold-out audience in Brooklyn that included Bjork before inspiring more buzz at SXSW recently, 22-year-old classically-trained pianist James Blake has been winning music-nerd hearts with his ethereal dubstep and slow-paced riffs on soul and R&B that evoke everyone from Bon Iver and Antony Hegarty to Jai Paul. While we’ve been hooked on “I Never Learnt to Share,” his new video for “Wilhelm Scream” makes a good excuse to check out his intensely-detailed production style and effective use of silence.
