The Fall – Gorillaz

$38.00
Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne

Description

From Montreal to Vancouver. Via Seattle, Texas and Toronto - during the 32-day North American tour last fall, the Gorillaz recorded a musical diary. The result is a collection of 15 songs - some with, some without vocals, some in collaboration with others, some solo.
The music was recorded whenever there was some free time on the road. "I did this because you always have a lot of time that you spend essentially staring at the wall," says Damon Albarn. "I found that working during the day, whether in a hotel or a concert hall, was a brilliant way to keep yourself in good spirits. In addition this song collection is really like a musical diary. I really wrote everything in that one day in that one place. And there's a special kind of American sound and musical tradition that resonates. It feels like a trip across America."
Reviews
"If you love snapshots and like to read postcards about banal things - please!" (Rolling Stone, 05 / 2011)
"The gorillas remain innovative. An album from the iPad, full of bulky to beautiful electronics." [stereoplay, 06 / 2011]
"Pop tunes, electro beats and hip-hop mix together to create a weird Sound collagen. And Albarn's voice remains the only connecting element." (audio, 06 / 2011)
(pop) music could not be more varied and original, and that by the simplest means (Stereo, July 2011)
