JAMIE LIDELL "Compass"

Jamie Lidell "Compass"The electro-soul bending wizard has returned with the quickness of lightning. With the help of his calvary (including Beck, Feist, Grizzly Bear Chris Taylor, James Gadson, Daniel Rossen and others) his alchemy of funk, soul, electro and holleration can be heard on this new track “Compass.”  Much like its predecessors, the soulful vibe have been retained and is accompanied by a deconstruction of old sounding vintage drum beats and hidden echoes of the future beneath it.  The lead single from his upcoming album of the same title shows no deviation from the master’s creative mind.

As a big fan of Jamie Lidell’s Multiply and Jim (and having major respect for Muddling Gears) I am quite curious to see where the rest of the album goes.  Will it be a culmination of all the directions he’s gone or will it continue the jam sessions from the previous two albums.  Just seeing the list of collaborators on this album let’s you know that it’s going to sound like an instant classic.

Compass is going to be released May 18th, 2009 on Warp Records.

LOOKBOOK "True To Form" MP3 + TOUR

Lookbook

One of Minneapolis’ “Best New Bands” shouldn’t be a secret anymore.  Their new album Wild At Heart combining the glamerous pop of Madonna electrofied and Lookbook’s midwestern tinge is bombastic.  Listen to their track “True To Form” and tell me it doesn’t make you want to shake.  The beats created by Grant Cutler are thick.  Maggie Morrison’s vocals are so powerful you’ll feel shivers thunder down your spine.  On top of that seeing their music live will let you feel those beats and vocals avalanche all you.  Lucky for you they’re heading out on tour.
