The UK’s Jamie Lidell has always been that dude. Sure, he got lost in the blue eyed soul shuffle (in the States anyway), but he’s always been a solid talent. You might remember him from that excellent “Little Bit More,” song on the Target commercials from back in the day. Sure he has a soulful voice, but he goes against the traditional “crooner” vein, switching up his traditional R&B with eccentric percussion and beat-boxing.
I’m glad to see Jamie Lidell back on the scene with the track “I Wanna Be Your Telephone.” Not much to say about this track. It’s great. It’s the same off-kilter retro-soul sound that Jamie is known for. Very good look. (props Chuck’s Twitter)
