Departure on CD

Downtempo & dub from the Canadian Independent Music Award winners. Departure is the 2008 album from Fidgital. It's a departure in many ways - few lyrics, slow tempos, sparse instrumentation & a focus on emotion give Departure a mood & sound unique in the Fidgital catalogue. The new sound & subject matter were inspired by producer Keith Gillard's recent relocation to the San Francisco Bay Area. 'Constant travelling prevented me establishing any sense of 'home' in my new environment. I explored isolation, alienation & loneliness, & I tried to show a path from despair to hope, peace & joy.' Departure combines elements from indie rock, glitch, instrumental hip-hop, dub reggae, ambient & jazz to create a soundtrack for a life spent between departure terminals & hotels. Press for previous Fidgital releases: Fidgital's live show is a high energy, tighter than tight musical romp through a vast catalogue of impressive tunes. - CBC Radio 3 Horns & glamorous strings, dramatic neon romance, techno & jazz influences. A new sound, widening the path paved by Jazzanova. (Editor's Pick) - Exclaim! Big band horns & crunchy jazz chords in beautifully-written pop propelled by the funkiest beats. Pet Shop Boys meet Manhattan Transfer at the coolest club in the universe. (4 ½ stars) - The Edmonton Sun '80s pop, big beat & jazzy house. Evokes a funkier Thievery Corp. Fun & very stylish. - Vancouver Province 2 parts jazzy spy music, 1 part drum & bass, a splash of jungle & just the right amount of vocal & you get this mellow, up-beat sound collage. Yummy. - Chart Slemko is reminiscent of Freddie Mercury. His easy-going, high-speed vocal delivery is a high point. A west coast jazz flavour that is infectious. - Tribe Acid jazz-flecked electro fusion beauty. I haven't heard a more imaginative band since Emergency Broadcast Network. Clubby beats with beautiful vocals. Absolutely fabulous. - Smother.net Fidgital is the hottest import from Canada since skunk #1. - The DJ Union, Hollywood.
