i fully agree with your statements about 'jim', the album feels like it was made to be played at starbucks. i'd rather hate on an excellent musician that's falling off rather than giving them a free pass.

additionally, a few statements about lidell:
* 'daddy's car' far exceeds any of the work on his post-breakthrough albums.
* 'deep ellum' by the lo-fidelity all-stars is what 'multiply' should sound like, but doesn't.
* 'multiply additions' is one of the very few remix albums that i think trumps the source material. mara carlyle's take on 'game for fools' is unbelieably good, better than the album cut by miles.

For what it's worth, at Sasquatch he split his brief set something like two songs solo beatboxing style and four or five with full band. You can probably count on at least "When I Come Back Around" and "Little Bit More" in the old school style.

"let's be clear" c. barack la familia

i didn't call you a jamie lidell hater.

i just called you a hater!

but yeah, lidell's show was pretty freakin cheesy last night. there was a guy playing talkbox thru an oboe. and did he always spin the umbrella with the swirl painted on it while he sang? my gf said "what is he, the riddler?"

janelle monae murked his whole set (at least what saw of it before i called it)- but man, the sound was uniformly awful @ showbox last night, wtf is up with that?

Okay, Lar. I'm a hater.

And it looks like I got ill at the right time. I disco napped through Jamie's lame set.

So up for a super_collider reunion it hurts. "It Won't Be Long" haunted me for a few years (heard Tipper play it on groovetech) before I discovered them.

And, yup, delayed-onset dBflu here too.

And I'll be a shallow hater:

Jamie Lidell gets uglier every time I see him, which depresses me.
