Jamie Lidell unleashes his full on vision of Future Pop with “You Naked” off his upcoming self-tittled album on Warp Records. Listen to “What A Shame” off of the same release and the Tom Waits meets Outakast “why_ya_why”.
Jamie Lidell returns with his self-titled album on February 19, “What A Shame” is the first we hear of Jamie Lidell’s latest sound. It is a metallic sounding electronic funk RnB track that Jamie says pulls from Mtume, Cameo, New Jack Swing, Bobby Brown and George Clinton but I definitely hear Jamie pulling sonic inspiration from his contemporaries such as Rustie. I am definitely intrigued how Jamie taps back into his electronic roots while still crafting well written and produced songs on this new album.
Jamie Lidell steps back from his new soulful crooner status to show his electronic roots. This is his banger take on Tiga’s absurd/cornball pop with some heavily distorted beat boxing. Don’t worry he throws in some heavily effected vocoder, Zapp & Roger sounding pentatonic vocal riffing in the middle of the track. I wonder if side of Jamie will be on his new album “Compass” coming out in May via Warp Records.

Wow. This is the music Jamie Lidell was destined to make. He proved himself a master of the crazy electronic world, by crafting his own synth programs in with Max/MSP. Now is fully blossoming into the singer/songwriter that he really is, it is totally understandable why Elton John asked him to open for him this past summer in the UK. This new song “Compass” reminds me of Feist, a common collaborator with Mr. Lidell and Gonzales – especially with the guitars and the production. I really hope that Gonzales is involved with Jamie’s upcoming album.
Magistrates are a UK band signed to XL Recordings. They remind me of Phoenix’s pop appeal and musicality with Klaxons’ falsetto vocals with Jamie Lidell’s white boy soul vibe and a touch of Maroon 5’s undeniable catchiness. Let’s wait and see what their album has in store for everyone.
Housse de Racket are a French pop rock duo in the vain of Phoenix meets the whole new Ivy Indie scene of Chester French (Harvard), Vampire Weekend (Columbia) & Hey Champ (Princeton). They are opening for a few Jamie Lidell dates in Europe. Gonzales remixed their single “Oh Yeah” turning it into a track that sounds like a soulful Daft Punk’s “Teachers”.
