Listen to Jamie Liddell ‘Jim’

British crooner Jamie Lidell rings in the weekend by posting his brand-new tracks from his new album “Jim” on MySpace. The song is called “Little Bit Feel Good” and if this sun-splashed soul-pop stomper is a good indication of the rest of this new Lidell LP then we’re in for a treat.

Recorded in Berlin, Los Angeles and Paris, Lidell once again hooks up with producers Mocky and Gonzales to polish his raw ideas and turn them into a collection of catchy, hit-worthy songs. A press release describes “Jim” as an album that “will switch you on in the morning, move you on the dance-floor and take you down in the small hours. It’s a bold, promiscuously diverse album, mixing up gospel grooves, sweetly sung and fiercely passionate soul, delicately moving ballads, thumping early R & B, synthed-up disco, and even a touch of “hillbilly funk.'” Sounds like a winner to me.

Lidell adds in the statement, “The most important thing was the vocal, to capture the balance of me delivering the songs with full gusto, and at the same time retaining the grain and the grit.”

London: The Whole Town Being Painted?!

It is reported that Banksy’s friend and rival artist Nick Walker is taking the street’s art battle to the entire London. A handout image provided to media of the Houses of Parliament dripping in colours, showing that the town will be painted red, yellow, purple, pink and green. However, Walker is not using spray paint anymore, but a giant laser beam to colour some of British capital’s landmarks.

By the way, Banksy has just created his largest work in London to date. It was also completed after he managed to erect a three storey scaffolding behind a security fence under cover of darkness while CCTV cameras looked on.

For those who don’t know or can’t remember Banksy’s works, here are some to jolt your memory:
