Re: FOUR NEW GORILLAZ SONGS: Listen Now!

I think Ascension is sensational - best beat and instrumental track that Gorillaz have done in an age and Vince sounds awesome and focused (for once); Andromeda is v v good but (particularly on the live recording) has a slightly underwhelming chorus. Saturnz Barz I love. Jury is out on We Got The Po...

Stylo sneaks it courtesy of being right at the start of the decade, but it's definitely up there.

Re: FOUR NEW GORILLAZ SONGS: Listen Now!

Trying to work out what people mean when they say 'song-based' music? Has to have a verse, a chorus and a middle eight? Has to have a story or a narrative theme? I hate to disappoint, but a lot of rap music does all those things very precisely (alright, middle eights aren't that common). But in term...

Re: New Gorillaz album (2017)

If that list is right then this could be the biggest Gorillaz LP yet; looking at the guests Damon has never managed to get rappers as contemporary and credible as Danny Brown, Vince Staples, D.R.A.M, Pusha T etc before. Could be some massive singles there. Disappointed at the lack of British collabo...

Re: Blur Tribute album in the works (forum comp)

Oh, I didn't see this. I think I'd quite like to have a go! But have never attempted to cover anything before. Will see what I can do.

Re: Gig: BST Hyde Park, 20 June

So excited about Teleman and Roots Manuva. Not sure I can think of two better support acts at any Blur gig I've seen (except Pulp and Supergrass!).

Re: Blur on US TV: The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon 30th Apr

I'd not spotted that a few people weren't digging Ong Ong. Funny as it strikes me as by far the most catchy and radio friendly song on the album - biggest chorus, biggest singalong potential. Maybe I'm not getting U.S expectations or something. Anyway, I'm sure the band couldn't care less whether th...

Re: Blur on US TV: The Tonight Show w/ Jimmy Fallon 30th Apr

Ooh, just seen this, what a beautiful performance. They seem to be getting better at playing this one; first time they've captured the lovely sleepy somnambulant sound of the LP version, I think - and lovely guitar stuff from Graham. Perfect.
