James Blake bared his smoldering soul for a 90-minute live performance at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club on May 12, and now the entire set is streaming online (via NPR). Blake played a total of 16 songs, drawing heavily from his two studio albums (2011's self-titled and this year's Overgrown), with a few tracks from his various EPs sprinkled throughout. Blake left out Overgrown cut "Take a Fall For Me," so RZA won't cameo here. But the U.K. crooner's face-tingling drop on "I Never Learnt to Share" makes it all worth watching.
