CMYK by James Blake

I find the resurgence of vinyl fascinating.

Yes records are great. And yes the covers make for great artwork.

But as someone who listens to a lot of music I can't be bothered having to get up and turn the record over every 20 or so minutes.

Regardless of my apparent lack of love for vinyl I do have a soft spot for it. And a rather large collection.

I just don't play it very often.

What I really love is the concept of the album as a work of art.

Not just the music. The whole package.

The James Blake ep CMYK is a great example of this.

Sure you can buy the standard 12" version.

Or you can buy it as a triple pack in the three colours that make up the CMYK spectrum.

Pretty clever huh?
