Live music in New Orleans this week (Sept. 27-Oct. 3, 2016) 


James Blake
Tue. Sept. 27 | Londoner James Blake was a natural choice to score HBO's Rapture-horror The Leftovers: It's possible to hear his electro-lonerism emanating from either side of that divide. Third LP The Colour in Anything (Polydor) caps a year of collaborations with Bon Iver, Frank Ocean and Beyonce. At 9 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater.

Luke Winslow King album release
Fri. Sept. 30 | Singer-songwriter Luke Winslow King's fifth album,I'm Glad Trouble Don't Last Always (Bloodshot), opens with a couple of rumbling, rawer-edged blues tunes before he settles into gentler reflections on love and loss. The album is out Friday. At 10 p.m. at d.b.a.

Sat. Oct. 1 | Whatever Compton postmark Kendrick Lamar lost in transition on the genre-evolved To Pimp a Butterfly, YG finds on marquee West Coast reps My Krazy Life and Still Brazy (Def Jam), both of which carry the unmistakable feeling of a rap event. RJ, Sadboy and Grosser open at 9 p.m. at House of Blues.
