Changing Directions
Lewis Taylor is one of those crazy Prince/Jamie Lidell/Maxwell play/sing everything on the record control freaks. That said, similar quality, though if you don't like or even hate any or all of the above, not for you. He's from North London and put out an immaculate '60s soul record two years ago that was so influential it inspired a tribute album Lewis by the Numbers the following year. He recently released a truly strange follow-up called The Lost Album that jettisons much of the soul feel for a cranky and slightly morbid Appalachian blues.
