"Jamie Lidell is a genuinely restless soul. He broke out of small-town England and has been a nomad ever since. His constant desire to progress, leaping and stumbling towards new discoveries, has defined his musical journey so far; and there's no sign of it fading away. Recorded in Los Angeles, New York and Canada, Compass is 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. Jamie's fellow travelers on Compass include Beck, Feist, Gonzales, Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear and Pat Sansone of Wilco. Musically and lyrically this is very much A Jamie Lidell Production reflecting not only his exhilarating, diverse tastes, but also a year of change, love, longing and arrival at a new place. For both newcomers and initiates, this will be an experience. And no, he won't stop."
