Album Review: Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx - We're New Here

Tuesday 12th April, 2011 10:19AM

I’m New Here was an excellent return to form for ‘70s music pioneer Gil Scott-Heron. The all-too-brief album marked the end of a long hiatus for Scott-Heron and hopefully showcased his singular talent to younger fans. However, for an album that was so heavily based around Scott-Heron’s impressions of New York, it seemed a risk for a precocious Londoner to take on the re-mix. However, Jamie xx’s take on the album makes it sound even much more optimistic than Scott-Heron’s piece. Whether it’s as resonant as Gil Scott-Heron on his lonesome is certainly arguable, but Jamie xx’s effective re-casting of the tracks and canny use of Scott-Heron’s voice makes for a highly enjoyable and moody listen.
