Jimi Goodwin – Odludek

What’s in a name? Odludek is a Polish word meaning loner or pilgrim. Chosen as the title of Jimi Goodwin’s first solo excursion since fronting British band Doves, it seems to encompass the artist’s purpose. With the band on a lengthy hiatus, Goodwin has taken time out to conjure an album on which he plays almost all the instruments himself to mark a “this is me” line in the sand. Goodwin is quoted as saying he set out to make “this mad mixtape”…”eclectic as fuck”…”a reflection of how I schizophrenically devour music.” With some co-writing assistance from Elbow’s Guy Garvey and Paul Weller-collaborator Simon Dine, the results go as boldly as that particular split infinitive.
