Odludek, the solo debut from Doves' Jimi Goodwin, makes up for what it lacks in consistency of tone with a pioneering spirit that both mocks and celebrates the digital age. Genres be damned, Goodwin is at his heart a world-weary Brit-pop songsmith in the vein of Elbow's Guy Garvey, and there is some of that to be found here, but for the most part, Odludek's ten largely disparate tracks play like somebody bumped into the shuffle button while the DJ was taking a smoke break.
Goodwin wanted the album to be like a mixtape that school friends would put together for each other back when cassettes were a major currency, and he has succeeded. While there may be a shortage of highlights, ‘Odludek’ is one hell of an eclectic mix; an ever-changing canvas that remains intriguing throughout
On Monday (24 March) Jimi Goodwin is set to release his first solo album, Odludek. listen to ‘Jimi Goodwin's guide to his debut solo album Odludek’ on Audioboo.
Jimi's debut album 'Odludek' released March 24th 2014. Goodwin will kick off 2015 with a performance at our Heavenly 25th anniversary weekend at Hebden Bridge. He will play a matinee show with Kid Wave in support on Saturday 24th January.
Odludek is co-produced by Jimi and Dan Austin (Doves, Pixies) and features tracks co-written with Elbow's Guy Garvey and one 'Didsbury Girl' with Simon Dine (who collaborated with Paul Weller on his recent run of albums). Impossible to pigeonhole, properly addictive and hook heavy, Odludek is the first great record of 2014. Four years in the making, the album finds Doves vocalist Jimi Goodwin re-affirming the talent that made his old band one of the British scene’s better acts of the new millennium. Opener Terracotta Warrior is very typical of the Doves sound – Goodwin’s very recognizable vocals, paired with spacey instrumentation (love the use of two drummers!) and a finely-detailed production that screams out for listeners to strap on a pair of good headphones
