James Blake’s music has been dubbed “Robot Soul” for its warped dubstep-in-slo-mo sound, over which he lays some seriously heartfelt vocals. After hearing his heralded debut album The Wilhelm Scream, one might think he relies on auto tune or some other digital trickery to hit the highs and lows throughout. But his acoustic rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “Case of You,” which he recently performed on the Beeb, puts any doubts to rest—dude’s got skills. The songwriting also reminds you of how amazing Joni Mitchell’s 1971 album Blue was.
