He's like a shark. Albeit a stone cold funked-up, sonically obsessed, romantically soulful killer shark. And he isn't going to stop. No, he won't stop. Please don't ask him to. Just get out of the way, enjoy the spectacle and the soundtrack.
Lidell is back with his 4th album, Compass, his most eclectic album yet. Songs shift, chop, change and mutate genres and forms before our very ears. It's got funk in spades; the jaw-dropping power of the vocals is stronger than ever; it rocks, it pops, it's sweet, angry, hard, soulful and soft, often within the span of a single track.
It's the restless album that finally matches the soul of its creator, and features contributions from Beck, Feist, members of Grizzly Bear, and Wilco.
