Re: TGTBTQ: New single "Merrie Land"

The Now Now has lots of good choruses.

Tranz, Hollywood, Magic City, Souk Eye...

And obviously "hit single with a good chorus" isn't what he was going for here. He pretty much says so in the Lou Reed quote.

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

Trying to think of all the organic instrumentation on Humanz. It's got a Wurlitzer on Strobelite, Graham's mixed-way-too-fucking-quiet background guitar on Submission and some strings on Carnival. I think that might be it. Compare that with these songs. Prominent lead guitar on Humility, prominent p...

I'm thinking Hollywood is probably the one they'll do the big budget video for. It'd definitely make more sense at any rate...

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

are the people behind the power puff girls teaming up / helping in some way with an animated Gorillaz series? Jamie is friends with Craig McCracken. They've done this before on a much smaller scale.

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

I wonder if that's Graham playing the leads on Humility.

(kinda sounds too good to be the guy from the live band imo)

Re: Damon Albarn’s Africa Express project accused of unfair.

it's definitely a problem if all the players and singers aren't made abundantly clear that this is a non-profit thing

but also i'd say it's more something that damon's people should be worrying about when booking these things than damon himself

yeah, i thought that too

it uses different chords (when it started i thought it was gonna end up sounding like villa rosie) but the vibe is definitely gut feeling

Re: The Beatles Thread

john's christmas song is pretty good (very overplayed though)

paul's is dreadful. i love synthesizer music and the synths on it sound pretty neat but everything else there can't be saved by that.

Re: unpopular blur opinions

i think it works

the melody is still good, the vocals go higher, it's got more cymbals and background vocals

beetlebum has a really good build to it, at least i think so..

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread

found the tracks, here are some thoughts (a couple of them were just beats that i didn't really have any thoughts on) Long Beach sounds like it could have been a really good song if, well, a song were written around it. Duetz is the first time Damon has sounded good with autotune on his voice. I lik...

Re: GORILLAZ: Humanz Album Thread

It's a cool little song but it doesn't really have a Gorillaz feel.
Like the only consistent thing with Gorillaz is good hooks and this is just a beat and some rapping.

It's good for what it is, though. The video's really cool, probably better than the Strobelite one.
