Just the other day Pitchfork posted an article that Damon Albarn has been hard at work, and has big plans for for the future that all his fans can get excited about.
1) The new The Good, The Bad, & The Queen album is written and ready to record
2) We should be expecting a 2016 follow up album to Plastic Beach by the Gorrilaz
I love all of Damon Albarn’s work, and am overly ecsatic about the news of another Gorrilaz album. To celebrate this joyous occasion I have decided to share the music video for “On Melancholy Hill” with all of you, and alsoI am going to listen to The Good, The Bad, & The Queen on repeat all day today.
I was never familar with Agnes Obel’s work until now, and I must say, I’m pretty upset I didn’t stumble upon her music earlier. This is a woman whose voice and piano-playing abilities will have you listening to all of her songs on YouTube (trust me, that’s what I’ve been doing). Agnes will be making her way over to the United States in a few short months, and will be right here in Cambridge in November! We are very excited to have her and we hope you are too!
Ever since we presented Stromae last week, I can not stop listening to music that is written in French! The music style that breaks over from Europe is so different, and I absolutely love it. I think it is amazing that even though we can not understand they lyrics of the song (or at least I can’t) that we are still able to connect with it on so many other levels. Here is a song I heard while leaving my hype machine account on all day at work, “Completement fou” by Yelle.
Hope it makes you want to crazy dance, like it does to me!
