Jamie Lidell – What A Shame
I wish I was a contortionist so I could arrange myself in the many different shapes and positions this track demands. Experimental soul-man, Jamie Lidell’s new album is out in Feb next year on Warp, and if What A Shame is anything to go by it’s going to be exciting, jagged and raw. An intro of crazy layered sounds and filtered cuts gives way to a steady beat and building anticipation. When the chorus drops its mighty force on your ears, you’ll be so consumed by the industrial, clunking noise, you’ll become a puppet at the mercy of Lidell’s voice. He’s hitting the road next year for a pretty big tour; you’d be mad to miss it.
