2. Desole
3. Strange Timez
4. Pac-Man
5. Momentary Bliss
6. Friday 13th
7. How Far

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

There is an absolutely great post on Reddit where someone has worked out all the various editions / versions. I didn't realise there were so many exclusive coloured editions, or that the cassettes each have a different tracklisting (!) It is further complicated by the bundles, as well as the Almana...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

There are a LOT of options! All the extra bundles, t-shirts, this Circle of Friendz pass, does make it quite complicated. The cassette options are bizarre, are they trying to make cassette the new vinyl? I ended up going for the Deluxe Vinyl as it seemed the best value (along with the Strange Timez ...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

Really strong song - bit of a sudden end though

Quality of Song Machine is significantly higher than Humanz I think

Re: Gorillaz tour 2021

it surprises me. I thought Gorillaz had been done for a while. It made more sense to present his new project about Iceland. But well, I suppose they will play the latest Gorillaz songs. I had already enough of Gorillaz ... Gorillaz cannot be done because as a project it has no boundaries. That's wh...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I reckon they've deliberately gone for a weaker one after Aries, because Aries is getting traction and still peaking. It's currently A List on 6 music for example. A weaker one lets Aries continue its momentum for another week or two

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

I was thinking the other day that in theory Gorillaz should be the ultimate lockdown band being virtual. If they brought back some of the 2001-2005 style 3D character TV performances with a "live" recording dubbed over

Re: RIP Tony Allen

Deeply saddened by the news. Feel so lucky to have not only seen him perform many times but to have briefly met him as well. Lovely man and the master of his craft. Such a shame especially considering he was still at the top of his game, with performances and releases planned.

Re: Best album closer

Incredible selection of songs. I love Mirrorball, definitely under-rated

Has to be TIAL though, in the context of the album

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

The new song Aries leaked... (obviously not sharing a link but it's not too difficult to find in the usual places) Spoiler alert - it is really really good and I can't think of many Gorillaz songs to compare it to. Maybe a cross between Pyongyang and Tranz. It's VERY New Order. Love it Really surpri...

Re: Gorillaz - Song Machine

This is absolutely great

One of the best songs he has done for years

Would be great if we get an “end of season” live show - could that be too much to hope for

Re: New track from Gorillaz to premiere on BBC Radio 1 this Thursday

Confirmed on Gorillaz YouTube... Gorillaz - Momentary Bliss ft. Slowthai and Slaves premieres tomorrow at 7:30pm It is described as “Episode 1”. I suspect Song Machine is an “album” which will just see songs get released / added as and when they are ready. I remember an interview with Damon on Beats...
