New Jamie Lidell

Some Monday morning music for you – a new song from Jamie Lidell called “Compass” from his new album of the same name due out May 18th. It’s amazing, and I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album, especially with news from Pitchfork that “talented people including Beck, Feist, Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, Daniel Rossen, and Chris Bear, Wilco’s Pat Sansone, legendary R&B drummer James Gadson, soul belter Nikka Costa, Beck keyboardist Brian LeBarton, and producer/songwriter Gonzales” helped out on this album.

When I first heard Jamie a while back I was shocked to put a face to his voice, especially when you listen to his song “Another Day”, which is my go-to cheering up song. You just don’t really expect a guy who looks like he stepped out of a Wes Anderson movie to have that voice.
