Soundcheck Award – James Blake “Overgrown”

The "Soundcheck Award" is awarded by a consortium of German Music critics for the album of the year. Instead of handing out some tacky trophy it was the idea of Kai Müller of the Berlin newspaper Der Tagesspiegel to commission Otto Steininger to design a poster which serves as the physical representation of the award. This year it went to James Blake for his album “Overgrown”, which was released in 2013.
