Four Tet @ Doug Fir, 1-OCT-2005

Four Tet CD
An interesting electronic lineup at the Doug Fir last night, with Koushik and Jamie Liddell opening for Four Tet. The Four Tet set was dense and intense, rhythmic and busy. I liked most of it, recognized several tracks, which were done in a similar fashion to the recordings, but he seemed to take them off in new directions after the original portion.Jamie Liddell was a strange mix of electronics and his singing. Sometimes he was singing basically soul songs (sounding a bit like Stevie Wonder to me) with recorded backup or acapella, then sometimes he was fully using the electronics. He was often using snippets of his vocal to build up tracks which worked very nicely.
