Impulse Buy Of The Month: Gorillaz - Demon Days
As most of you know, I love music. Most of what I pick up is to fill in the gaps in my 80's knowledge (yes, there are cavernous gaps in some areas like Latin and Bluegrass.) So when I take a risk on something newer, it comes with quite some research... usually.
I had this nice gift card burning a hole in my wallet for the few weeks and I knew that I'd wind up picking up White Stripes' Elephant on CD and expected to grab another one of theirs to compare. That was until I caught the video for Gorillaz' "Feel Good Inc." which features De La Soul. The dark dance groove and eerie vocals drove me ape shyt. To get a better idea of what I mean check out their website and look for where it says 'Watch The Dare Video' (next to 'Join The Mailing List'.) In there is a Box Office with a bunch of their videos including "Feel Good Inc." I need to listen to the album a few more times (I'm only part way through it now) to give a review of it but I just can't get the single out of my head.
