CMYK by James Blake
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?
