From Jamie Lidell himself: “Jamie and fellow musicians including Chilly Gonzales and Dan Rossen (Grizzly Bear) lift their hammers in this Anvil blues, whose lyrics describe a bedraggled beachcomber as he is seen desperately searching for his lost gold. The video, shot by Lindsey Rome in double vision through the barrel of a dusty camera’s sights finds Jamie returning to the songs birthplace, the beaches of Western Australia, to shout it out from the sands.”

Taken from the forthcoming album Compass out May 18th on Warp Records.
