They’re back baby! I’ve been meaning to put one of their new songs as SOTD for a while now, but I had to pick my favourite, and this is it (at least as far as the singles go). It seems that for a few years now dancehall and reggae influenced styles have reached the forefront of pop music. In typical Gorillaz fashion,  the popular music of the time is taken and blended it with whatever happens to come into the mind of Damon Albarn and whoever else may be in the studio. I love this kind of production, the mash up of so many different genres adds a certain amateurish charm and whether or not it’s true, it sounds like a lot of fun to do. Music doesn’t have to be pretentious or super serious to be a work of art, and Gorillaz prove that time and time again.
