Jamie Lidell’s new record, Compass, comes out May 17th, and this is certainly one of the best videos I’ve seen so far this year. (The synopsis, as copied straight from YouTube:)

“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.”
