Jamie is Jim. Let’s clear that up straight away. No easy feat to follow up 2005’s Multiply, which garnered many fans and an astounding collection of superlatives still ringing across the world. That album, Jamie’s second solo, caught most of us off-guard. After a decade of electronic experimentation that had brought him from underground techno to the science-funk of Super_Collider (with Cristian Vogel), and into his blistering live show, few people expected Jamie to make an honest-to-goodness soul and funk record. Jamie had let those classic influences fuse with his own deeply felt songwriting, meticulous production skills, and most of all, that flipping voice. Hard to believe that the bespectacled self-confessed music nerd who’d grown up fetishising samplers and boxes that went squelch, could belt it out like a Berry Gordy discovery circa 1961. And if you’d seen him live there was another glimpse of the old Jekyll-Hyde routine. Slyly self-deprecating gent becomes relentless sonic showman. The audience were there to dance, and now the man wrapped in gold lamé is crooning, spluttering, laughing, transforming words into sounds, noise into signal, a body-rocking beat conjured out of nowhere, and then over that, a rousing harmony. On the edge between control and chaos, Jamie turned music inside out – and it was an exhilarating experience.
Did you catch Sharon Jones on The Late Show with David Letterman last night? The Grammy nominee performed “Making Up and Breaking Up” along with Saun & Starr (The Dapettes), Paul Shaffer, and the CBS Orchestra.
Watch the performance below:
We are pleased to announce the return of Baltimore’s Lower Dens with their third album, Escape from Evil, to be released on March 31, 2015. On Escape From Evil, Lower Dens’ Jana Hunter emerges: cerebral and hot-blooded, rash and incorruptible, and, crucially, possessing of a loud, clear voice. The album sees Hunter stepping up and taking center stage, and emboldening every aspect of the band.
Escape From Evil is a cinematic, tonally rich work. The sounds are clean and warm. The pulse of the album is strong. Melodies are potent and songs are physical. Lyrics are direct, frank confrontations with life’s common crises. The album title is brazen, and along with the grimly funny title of lead single, “To Die in L.A.”, almost theatrical. Listen to “To Die in L.A.” below and read Jana’s latest interview with Vogue.com.
