Product Description

‘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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Varied and diverse debut as a solo artist. 24 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD
Jimi Goodwin has carried on the tradition of Doves and Sub Sub to come up with a varied and diverse album of catchy songs with resonant lyrics and a relentless rhythm that is very easy to get caught up in.

Didsbury Girl, and Panic Tree are the most folky and Doves like of the tracks in my opinion and songs such as Man vs Dingo hark back to Sub Sub with the electronic effects and dark tones. Oh Whiskey is the standout track for me as its lyrics are so catchy. Every song says something different and in an interesting way.

Its a great album and highly recommended to anyone who likes the Doves and it shows that Doves fans can have faith in Jimi to pull out all the stops to continue the high quality of output as a solo artist.

Highly recommended. Five stars isn't quite enough...

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Ditties. 3 April 2014
When Beck released 'Sea Change' I remember one critic complained that the vocals on tracks like 'Paper Tiger' were sloppy or slurred, I forget the exact word used. I also remember thinking that this person must be new to the world of music and perhaps new to the world in general. Elvis, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits - non of these people took a rock 'n' roll elocution lesson.

My point is that music critics can be as dumb as the rest of us. They're just people whose voices reach a bigger audience than most.

The general consensus in the music press is that Jimi Goodwin's first solo effort away from his Doves band mates is an average affair at best. Some reviewers seem quite uptight, considering the business they're in, and almost offended that Mr. Goodwin should have the impertinence to make an album by himself. This strict parental attitude seems to have clouded their ability to enjoy 'Odludek' for what it is - the result of a great song writer letting his hair down, having some fun and coming up with some unexpected but inspired extracurricular invention.

Even if you can't accept that this is a solo effort, there's still a lot for a Doves fan to enjoy here. Tracks such as 'Didsbury Girl', 'Hope', 'Oh Whiskey', 'Keep My Soul In Song', and 'Ghost Of The Empties' are all excellent, equal to anything he's done before and certainly won't startle anyone who likes Doves' music.

'Live Like A River' has been likened to a Sub Sub track but the slight dance element is deceiving and merely a cover for a far more robust, driven song than anything that that band ever produced.

'Man v Dingo' is the one song where you feel that Mr. Goodwin's desire to make a "mad mix tape" of an album actually shows itself. The track is the most out-there element of 'Odludek'.

Odludek is the debut solo album from Doves front-man and guitarist Jimi Goodwin. For anyone unfamiliar with Jimi or the Doves, this is the band responsible for songs such as Catch the Sun, There Goes the Fear, Caught by the River, and Black and White Town amongst others. Since 2000, they’ve released four studio albums and currently seem to be having a ‘break from recording’ since their last album in 2009. Nice work if you can get it.

Odludek, as an album name, is seemingly taken from the Polish word meaning misanthropist, loner, hermit, or recluse. This does sound a little mysterious but quite apt considering this is Jimi going at it alone.

With talk of a solo album first mentioned in 2011, Jimi Goodwin had intriguingly indicated, “It's shaping up to be like a mad mix tape, no pause for breath, no gaps between songs, going from 140BPM carnival-style freak-out to a folk track then hitting a hip-hop-esque beat.”

Well, three years on, and the album doesn’t disappoint. Thankfully, it’s not quite the mad mix tape promised to us. It’s difficult not to draw comparisons with Doves, but yes there are pleasing similarities. However, the album also lacks a little quality control – I’d have preferred a couple of songs to have been omitted, but then I prefer music which is a little more acoustic/folk/alternative than anything ‘hip-hop-esque’.

And so, onto the tracks. You could imagine the album’s first track Terracotta Warrior being a worthy opener for the live gigs Jimi has scheduled. Didsbury Girl takes us onto more familiar Jimi Goodwin territory, while Hope is reminiscent of an Elbow-style track with accompanying male harmony vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am really pleased to have bought this. 30 May 2014

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great album, varied in sounds and styles with a mix of easily accessible tunes and growers. Too often a solo album is a commercial spin off rather than a worthwhile piece of art. Thankfully this is a well crafted and thought through release that builds on previous band work without going over well tred ground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gold diggers and amputees all agree! 1 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Coolest album for years. Mixing folk rock and house chill out. Drunken stomp song after 70s Disco homage anyone?(Man v Dingo) and love tune to a woman from a certain area of Manchester are but two of the intriguing tracks here.
