UK Soul

What with Amy Winehouse, Duffy, and now Jamie Lidell you'd think that Motown records JUST hit the UK. But in fact they are all part of new pool of artists making classic-sounding Motown/Stax for a new generation.

Jamie Lidell's Jim was just recently released in the U.S. but it has already been featured on the hit ABC drama Grey's Anatomy. It has also been rocking my iPod for a while now. I bought my mom a copy of Jim for Mother's Day and she already loves it.

I think you're gonna like it too. Whoever you are this music is undeniable. So hit your local record shop and ask for Jim :-)

Check out Another Day, the first song from Jim and if you don't feel like singing along then check your pulse.
