not gonna let you be the winner, not without a fight


There’s a sweet spot of ineffable cool that you have when you’re ten years old that you never get again.

For me, my dance moves were never as sweet or as futuristic as when I saw Captain E.O. at Disneyland when I was ten. I can remember tapping my toes on the (rumbling, jolting) ground and dancing in my (moving) seat. This new song from Jamie Lidell immediately invoked those exact same feelings in me when I listened to it this morning, from the get-go with those mysterious opening notes. I can practically smell the dry ice. Grown-up me is not nearly as cool as ten-year-old me, but this did lead to some dangerously impressive run-dance moves on the treadmill in my basement today.

Jamie Lidell has been a complete badass in my book since I heard Multiply in 2005. His new album is self-titled, and you should get it right now. Your dance moves need some EOing.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
