The musician and soul singer Jamie Lidell announced his new Album. Compass coming in spring time on Warp Records.
[audio:Jamie Lidell – Compass.mp3] Jamie also has a group with Cristian Vogel called Super Collider. Lidell is known for layering tracks made with his voice into a microphone & performing the percussion and melody as a sequenced, beatboxing one-man band. New album comes out May 17/18.
Then over his augmented voices, he sings soul-inspired songs. This exercise makes for energetic live performances. Lidell has become renowned for his diverse range of genre-exploration.
He often collaborates with Canadian musicians such as Gonzales, Feist and Mocky. He has also recently collaborated with British electronic duo Simian Mobile Disco for the song “Off The Map”.
In early 2009, Lidell’s JIM won in The 8th Annual Independent Music Awards for Best Pop/Rock Album. In 2009 he contributed a cover of a Grizzly Bear song to the Warp20 (Recreated) compilation, as well as having his song “A Little Bit More” covered by Tim Exile.
In March 2010, Lidell announced that he is releasing a new album entitled Compass which is being produced by fellow musician and occasional collaborator Beck. This album is due for release in May 2010.
