Posted November 30, 2012 by | 2 Comments | 4,196 views]

The progenitor of his own completely original genre that no one else has been able to recreate, glitchy soul divo Jamie Lidell is back! “What A Shame!” is an insane re-imagining of the bouncy mainstream R & B sounds of Destiny’s Child and/or Mary J Blige, as if produced by Lidell’s Warp peers Aphex Twin or Clark at their most spastic.

Posted November 29, 2012 by | 1 Comment | 3,757 views]
By Larry Hirshowitz
