Featured Jamie Lidell stories

You guys are going to hate this week’s list so much, but it’s high summer now, and I just can’t be bothered to list whatever piece of dark experimental conceptual indie rock silliness that someone might be into. This is a time for bright, shiny, professional high-grade pop music videos, videos about love and dancing… More »

Jamie Lidell – “Pink Light”

Jamie Lidell doesn’t subscribe to any particular genre leaning, and his discography amasses new influences without straying from his origins as a straight-up dance producer. “Pink Light” is a slow-burner, and its inaugural moments sound not totally unlike the fateful slow dance before the closing credits of an ’80s film. Astral synths abound, gossamer sheet… More »

Watch Jon Hamm, Zach Galifianakis, Chance The Rapper, & Jack Antonoff Cover The ’80s At Bonnaroo’s SuperJam

SuperJam is a unique late-night tent destination at Bonnaroo at which disparate artists take turns knocking out a set of classic covers. There are two SuperJams this year, a Sunday bluegrass one and last night’s main ’80s-themed “throwback” party led by Pretty Lights with DMC, Rob Trujillo (Metallica), Jack Antonoff, Chance The Rapper, Reggie Watts,… More »

Bonnaroo Reveals Throwback SuperJam 2015 Lineup

Full-blown festival season is fast-approaching, and we’ve already seen artist portraits from Shaky Knees and Sasquatch! and heard Tom’s stories from Coachella. Bonnaroo will go down in Tennessee starting on 6/11, and this year’s lineup is overflowing with huge names. Kendrick Lamar, Belle & Sebastian, the War On Drugs, Florence + The Machine, Jamie xx,… More »

Jamie Lidell – “Believe In Me” (Stereogum Premiere)

Jamie Lidell is a bit of a symphonic chameleon. He experimented with kaleidoscopic synthpop and itchy post-disco on his self-titled 2013 album and fashioned a blaring trap contribution for the refurbished Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack last year. Just a few weeks ago, we got to hear his silvery, soulful voice on Big Data’s latestMore »

Big Data – “Clean” (Feat. Jamie Lidell) (Stereogum Premiere)

Producer Alan Wilkis has enlisted countless vocalists to contribute to his next Big Data album, 2.0, and the first track “Snowed In” featured Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. “Clean” is the follow-up, and this time Wilkis eschews indie-rock altogether, instead enlisting English electro-crooner Jamie Lidell. The Nashville-by-way-of-England singer rose to prominence for warping his powerhouse voice with… More »

Jamie Lidell – “Run Away”

Grand Theft Auto has something for everyone — even if you don’t enjoy the depravity promoted by the game, the lengthy soundtrack and private stations contained within GTA are revolutionary when it comes to incorporating music into video games. The most recent version, GTA V, is set to relaunch on Tuesday with a modified versio… More »

Jamie Lidell – “Big Love (Machinedrum Remix)”

Machinedrum — aka Neon Black, aka Travis Stewart — is best known as one of Azealia Banks’ preferred producers. He just released a remix of Jamie Lidell’s stand-out track “Big Love,” off of Lidell’s self-titled release from earlier this year. Lidell makes his own brand of glitchy electro-soul music, and Machinedrum honors that while turning… More »

Jamie Lidell – “Big Love” Video

When a white R&B singer makes a video where he’s the only white person around, it’s easy to get suspicious about motives. But the glitch-soul pioneer Jamie Lidell, who released a self-titled album earlier this year, seems concerned with things other than just looking cool. In his “Big Love” clip, directed by Michael Carter, Lidell… More »

Jamie Lidell – “You Naked” Video

Jamie Lidell is essentially the Warp Records D’Angelo — a master-craftsmen of genre hybrids packing potent lyrical punches of love. With “You Naked,” one would think Lidell would deliver something a little bit more salacious, but this video is extremely safe for work. In fact, if anything, it’s as if he’s gotten trapped in a… More »

Brandt Brauer Frick – “Broken Pieces” (Feat. Jamie Lidell) (Stereogum Premiere)

In a couple of months, the Berlin dance production trio Brandt Brauer Frick will release their new album Miami. And on one of its tracks, deconstructionist soul singer Jamie Lidell shows up, allowing the group to chop his gritty tenor up into a million shards, lacing those bits into a glitchy thumper of a track.

Jamie Lidell – “Why_ya_why”

The warped soul-music pastiche master Jamie Lidell returns next month with a new self-titled album. Previously, we’ve heard “What A Shame,” the weird left-turn of a first single. And now he’s followed it up with “Why_ya_why,” a squelchy and decaying electro-jazz things that pushes things even further in the abstract. Do not expect to hear… More »

Jamie Lidell – “What A Shame”

The willfully weird electro-soul loverman Jamie Lidell will release a self-titled album early next year, and he appears to be tapping deeper into his weird side than he’s done in a while. On first single “What A Shame,” he throws his honeyed falsetto all over a wriggling post-dubstep drunken monster of a track, and you… More »

Jamie Lidell – “Telephone” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Jamie Lidell’s Lindsey Rome-directed video for “Telephone” features Jamie, a woman, and a telephone in front of a red theater curtain. Sounds simple, but you can do a lot with a scruffy, swaggering dude, a scantily clad woman carrying an “I wanna be your telephone” sign, and a basic old-school rotary. Lidell got heady/this isMore »

Jamie Lidell – “The Ring” Video

The title track from Jamie Lidell’s Compass had an unusually vulnerable vocal for Lidell, an attitude as well as stylistic shift. “The Ring” has Lidell’s usual swagger intact, though, while the video has Lidell’s usual weirdness. Lidell can do some strange, expressive things with his face while he’s singing, but he goes into full-body spasm… More »

Jamie Lidell – “Compass”

Last time we saw Jamie Lidell, he was helping Beck (and Feist, some Wilco folks) reinterpret Skip Spence’s Oar. The favor’s been returned: Beck, Feist, and Pat Sansone of Wilco show up on Lidell’s fourth full-length Compass. In fact, the way it’s spun, Lidell & Co. were inspired by the “chemistry” of the Record Clu… More »

Beck Recruits Wilco, Feist, Jamie Lidell For Skip Spence “Record Club” Tribute

When not collaborating with Charlotte Gainsbourg on IRM, Beck continues adding covers collections to his Record Club. His (and MGMT and Devendra Banhart’s) go at Songs Of Leonard Cohen included mixed results. We have higher hopes for his take on Skip Spence’s gorgeous 1969 solo album Oar — we’ve heard Hansen cover the Jefferson Airplane/Moby… More »

Jamie Lidell, Pivot Cover Grizzly Bear On Warp20 Recreated

After years being at the forefront of forward thinking electronic music, estimable UK indie Warp Records began branching out in directions you are familiar with (think: Grizzly Bear, Battles, Maxïmo Park — all brought to you by the label of Aphex Twin and Boards Of Canada). It’s an expansion that’s netted them love from further… More »
