In House #1741: Jamie Lidell in Salt Lake City Tonight; New Beck
Producer and electronic musician turned blue-eyed neo-soul singer Jamie Lidell plays Salt Lake City's Urban Lounge tonight as he continues to ride the wave created by Multiply, his second release out about a year and a half ago. The British-born artist turned his attention away from the blips and bleeps creations for which he had become known as one half of Super_Collider for the album, instead opting for a refreshingly organic, classic Motown-inspired sound. The mix of horn sections, warm bass lines, and Hammond organ sounds great, but it's Lidell's soul-blasted vocals that are Multiply's real revelation. Often over the course of the album there are moments that sound as if they could have been lifted from anything ranging from classic Stevie Wonder and James Brown, to early Prince. Whether Lidell's schtick is a tongue-in-cheek act or not, it's that believable.
In House #1741.
