New Simian Mobile Disco (Feat. Jamie Lidell) – “Off The Map”

By Amrit Singh / July 30, 2009

Sonic soul sorcerer Jamie Lidell says this collab cut, from Simian Mobile Disco’s forthcoming Temporary Pleasure LP, has been sitting in his vault with the title “Disco Fascist.” And with a hook that spells out the “D.I.S.C.O.,” why not turn it over to the UK beat mavens. The result of their joint tinkering is a gritty, clinking synthed-up clubber going under the name “Off The Map,” joining “The Audacity Of Huge (Feat. Yeasayer’s Chris Keating)” as the second advance listen from SMD’s vocal-cameo heavy new album. Have a listen at MySpace. (H/T P4K)

Other singers joining SMD on Temporary Pleasure include Beth Ditto, Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, Gruff Rhys, Telepathe, and others. Album’s out 8/17 in the UK and 8/18 in the States via Wichita. You can catch SMD before that doing a DJ set next weekend at Lollapalooza.
