‘Odludek’ is the debut solo album by Jimi Goodwin. Co-produced by Jimi and Dan Austin (Doves, Pixies) and released by Heavenly Recordings. Having spent the last decade and a bit fronting much-missed Manchester legends Doves, Jimi Goodwin was a touch nervous about making music under his own name. He needn’t have worried; bouncing joyfully from genre to genre, ‘Odludek’ has all the thrill and excitement of an artist’s debut record whilst also displaying the wealth of experience of someone who has spent the last two decades making inspirational music. Impossible to pigeonhole, properly addictive and hook heavy, ‘Odludek’ is the first great record of 2014.
