Re: TGTBTQ: Merrie Land Album Thread

Got the album for Christmas on compact disc. A fixture in the car now and enjoying it more all the time. Damon’s output over the last few years has been getting better and better imho. If you take ML TNN and the 2D featuring Humanz songs and bsides, plus TMW, and most of the live versions from Every...

Re: TGTBTQ: New single "Merrie Land"

Reminds me a little bit of E-Bow the Letter.
But mostly it reminds me of Bowie's Where Are We Now? Wistful, talky, deceptively catchy, even the video is similar.

So - Visconti?

I'm beyond excited for this album, especially because the of Visconti's contribution.

Re: THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE QUEEN THREAD

The omens are good for the next GBQ album :) https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-kent-45642590 possibly not so good for the whale though :( :( Yeah - this is some amazingly elaborate publicity stunt! Guess the album must be about to drop. Maybe the whale is animatronic - it's probably swimming in...

John Osborne - The New Blur Album

I'm certain this must have been posted before (?), but I just discovered it.
For those of us who were teenagers in the 90s, this piece has to be especially emotive - and the ending totally floored me:

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

You can't beat that melody, that chorus and those fantastic rap verses. For me it's the true definition of a masterpiece. Indeed, fantastic song no matter how you look at it. My memory though, was that the remix was what got the radio play. Same with 19-2000 - the remix was the things everybody kne...

The Boiler Room gig is up on youtube for 24 hours. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAy5pJzLvGc Listening now, and I think it's going to be the definitive version of TNN for me - love this version of Idaho - with a bit more pace to it :) Lots of great visuals unseen elsewhere as yet - Also, in the vi...

But at least unlike The Fall it's properly produced and can be considered a full-fledged album. Need to give it a few more listens, obviou...

Re: GORILLAZ: The Now Now Album Thread

For some reason the groove and even the vocals of Sorcererz a litle bit remind me of this amazing tune from the 90s :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_O6BWniZwY But then, every time my four year old sings Let It Go, from Frozen, there's a part where I automatically morph it in Girl From Mars by A...
