New Music: Jamie Lidell – I Wanna Be Your Telephone

Jamie LidellI Wanna Be Your Telephone

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)
