New sonic impulses

9 April 2020

Last January GORILLAZ stared a new project called Song Machine releasing new
songs and videos. So far two tracks were unleashed. Désolé featuring Ivory Coast
born singer Fatoumata Diawara and Momentary Bliss with slowthai  & Slaves

And here’s song number 3 from season 1. ARIES with the collaboration of Peter
(Joy Division/NO) and songstress Georgia . An upbeat dance tune sounding
like if Damon Albarn fronts New Order, thanks to the familiar, but still tremendous
bass lines by Hooky.

Here’s the vibe…

Happy 50 To ‘BLUR’ & ‘GORILLAZ’ Frontman And 24/7 Musical Centipede… DAMAN ALBARN.

23 March 2018

Happy 50 to DAMON ALBARN. Born in London on 23 March 1968 this musical centipede is most famous as the frontman of Britpop legends BLUR and singer/songwriter of virtual band GORILLAZ . But as a 24/7 musician he did far more than being a legendary pop star. He collaborated with countless artists, from African roots artists to sixties icon Marianne Faithfull, from writing musicals to forming a band with The Clash bassist Paul Simonon.
Here are 3 crackers Turn Up The Volume! picked to celebrate the man’s 50th birthday…

GORILLAZ – Already Back With Brand New Track… ‘SLEEPING POWDER’

Clips that will impress your ears and your eyes…


After releasing new, long-awaited, album HUMANZ just last April GORILLAZ is already back with a brand new track. Damon Albarn says SLEEPING POWDER is just one of the
40 to 45 songs (!) that didn’t make it onto the new LP so a quick follow-up longplayer is expected. But first this fresh vibrant tune, actually a 2-D solo effort with Albarn on vocals…

After Six Years – GORILLAZ Back With New Track… HALLELUJAH MONEY


‘Hallelujah Money’ by GORILLAZ – 19 January 2017


After six years GORILLAZ, the greatest cartoon band ever, featuring Damon Albarn, probably the busiest musician ever, and illustrator Jamie Hewlett, is back with brand
new track HALLELUJAH MONEY featuring British singer Benjamin Clementine and
snippets of Albarn‘s voice. The song is a moody, slow-moving ballad about business,
power and humanity. Yes, frightening thoughts on Donald Trump‘s tenure we are
about to suffer, unfortunately. It’s no coincidence that the song is released one day
before that idiot’s inauguration as 45th President of the U.S.A. The creepy images
projected in the clip behind Clementine visualize the troubled days we’ll have to face…

Here is our tree
That primitively grows
When we go to bed
Scare crows from the Far a-East
Come to eat its tender fruits
I have thought that the
Best way to protect our tree
Is by building walls
Walls like unicorns in full glory and galore
Even stronger than the walls of Jericho
Be glad then my friend
That in a few
We shall reap abundantly
What we’d always dreamt of havin
Enough of the starvin
It is love
That is the root of all evil
Not our tree
And thank you my friend
For trusting me

Hallelujah Money
Hallelujah Money

How will we know
When the morning comes
We are still humanz.
How will we know?
How will we dream?
How will we love?
How will we know?

Don’t worry my friend
If this be the end
Then so shall it be
Until we say so
Nothing will move
Ah, don’t worry
It is not against our morals
It’s legally tender
Touch my friend
What the whole world, and whole beasts of nations desire: power

Hallelujah Money
Cross the chemtrail sun
Hallelujah Money
