Listen to SBTRKT Live, Without Standing in Line

To ring in the new year (how long are we going to ride this New Year thing you ask? Oh, maybe til Feb.), London’s masked electro maverick SBTRKT released a live album called Live on Young Turk Records. The album features 10 tracks and two videos from his October performance  at  Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London.

Personally, I’m not such a huge fan of live electronic albums. With a few exceptions, only studios can make the sound crisp enough to listen to. The standout here is vocalist Sampha, who has that Antony and the Johnsons/Nina Simone contralto thing going.

Here’s a video from the album of “Hold On/Migration.”
